Minority & Diversity Committee
"Programs in the Works:"
The main idea is to organize a forum in which Los Angeles area employers or
employers with a Los Angeles nexus (as well as possibly members of the
bench) have an opportunity to interview law students of diverse backgrounds
and to encourage law students of every race, ethnicity, national origin,
sexual orientation, income level to practice law in the greater Los Angeles
area. This is a great opportunity for the participating firms to showcase
their commitments to diversity and for law students to have an in-depth look
at these firms, as well as sponsors.
Barristers Leadership Program:
Four to five students from each of the local law schools would be selected
based on application and/or recommendation by the law school. This program
would give law students an opportunity to: (i) see how a Bar Association
functions from an inside leadership perspective; (ii) provide leadership
training; (iii) provide access to bench and bar leadership and networking
High School Programs:
With the Blue Car Project, Tolerance Through Education, and high school
partnership programs in place, the Minority and Diversity Committee would
like to add the following: (i) legal career day; (ii) job shadow day; (iii)
high school law office summer job program; (iv) individual law firm
partnerships with high schools; (v) internships for at risk youth with the
DA's office; (vi) junior judges; (vii) summer law camp / moot court.
"Oh, the Places You'll Go" seminar for college (and potentially high school)
students about the wide variety of job opportunities with a degree in law.
Clerkship program for minority/diversity law students.
Looking for topics of interest.
