_33Posted by: The Indiana Lawyer.com

An annual program that gives young people from underrepresented communities a firsthand look at careers in the legal profession will take place this week in Indianapolis.

The 2015 Just the Beginning-A Pipeline Organization Summer Legal Institute begins Monday and concludes with closing ceremonies Friday at Eli Lilly & Co. The Chicago-based organization aims to promote diversity in the legal profession, and the institute allows dozens of students ages 14-18 an opportunity to learn about careers in law.

During the week, students will visit Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where they will prepare and present oral arguments. Networking, and negotiations and advocacy sessions also are planned at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, and Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP.
