While many undergraduates across the U.S. aspire to have a career in the legal profession, the path to law school requires more than a good transcript and desire. Navigating the law school admission process, preparing for the LSAT, and handling the workload of law school classes can be daunting—especially for first-generation, low-income, and minority students. Designed to help members of underrepresented groups in the legal profession, the University of Houston Law Center's Pre-Law Pipeline Program provides crucial support, including LSAT training, introductory classes, internships, and professional development workshops, to help talented students become familiar with the processes of getting in and succeeding in law school.
UHLC Dean and Professor of Law Leonard Baynes, program mentor and Jackson Walker partner Luke Gilman, and student participant and JW summer intern Jordyn Simmons discuss the pipeline program's mission and the value of attracting diverse talent to law schools. As Dean Baynes puts it, the pipeline program is "diversifying the legal profession, one student at a time."
Jackson Walker is a proud supporter of the UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Project. To explore the Firm's commitment to developing a pipeline of diverse talent through initiatives such as the UHLC program, visit JW.com/Diversity.
