The key to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the profession is by developing the pipeline and emphasizing the recruitment and retention of students of historically underrepresented backgrounds in law school. Join the ABA Young Lawyers Division’s Diversity & Inclusion Team and various law school professionals as we tackle the important conversation of the law school to legal profession pipeline.
Attendees will leave empowered to eliminate bias, increase diversity and inclusion, and foster meaningful conversations within the law school and legal profession settings.
