Building a Pipeline: A Focus from the Beginning

To improve diversity in the legal profession, we need to start at the beginning—grade school, high school, college, and law school. Pipeline programs that train and support underrepresented minority law students can provide the next generation with the skills they need to become successful legal practitioners and the connections to get a foot in the door.

In this talk, Judge Ann Claire Williams will provide perspective on how attorneys of all colors and law firms big and small can play a significant role in building the pipeline of diverse attorneys and on the importance of mentorship and sponsorship.
