The Summer Legal Institute provides high school students with exposure to legal careers, the opportunity to build legal and professional skills, and connections with judges, lawyers, and other leaders in the legal profession. This program is FREE to all participants! Applications for our 2017 Summer Legal Institute are now closed.

JTB offers free educational pipeline programming for students in middle school, high school, college, and law school with a mission to increase the diversity in the legal profession.  To hear directly from our scholars about how JTB programs have positively influenced them, click here 






In 2016, our school-year programs alone served more than 300 students. JTB’s signature school year programs include interactive workshops in a school setting and arranging for students to visit courthouses. Our 2016 summer programs successfully served 246 students. JTB also placed 25 diverse law students in federal judicial internships to allow them the unique opportunity to see the inner-workings of a judge’s chambers and enhance their legal research and writing skills.

Just The Beginning-A Pipeline Organization is visiting the Supreme Court! JTB and a special group of scholars have an amazing day planned as we begin by interacting with attorneys at McGuireWoods. We then make our way to the Supreme Court to learn how the highest court on the United States operates, and have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have an audience with Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg!


We are located in several cities across the United States. Our Programs reach all aspects of the pipeline through programs aimed at students from middle school through law school.
