It is partners like you that make our impactful programming possible. The key to our pipeline programming is the unique learning experience created by attorney volunteers from corporations and law firms that actively collaborate and work with our scholars.

Join us September 15-18, 2016 at the New York Marriott Marquis (New York, NY) as we celebrate "Equal Justice Under Law--The Legacy of Constance Baker Motley." We will bring together hundreds of high school students, lawyers and judges to enjoy compelling programming directly aimed at increasing diversity in the the legal profession and the judiciary. 




We are located in several cities including Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Detroit, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Springfield and Chicago. Our Programs reach all aspects of the pipeline through programs aimed at students from elementary school through law school.
