Pipeline Programs

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has created a variety of pipeline programs to promote access to law school and drive diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal community.

The School of Law offers the following programs throughout the year:

Law School is For You, Too! Lunch - Middle School

SLU LAW welcomes middle school students in St. Louis, who identify with communities that are underrepresented in legal education and the profession, who are interested in learning more about how to become a lawyer. Students will have the opportunity to tour the law school, meet and have lunch with current diverse students.

This is an annual program. Current dates will be announced.

Law Student for Day - High School

SLU LAW welcomes high school students in St. Louis, who identify with communities that are underrepresented in legal education and the profession, who are interested in attending law school, to be a law student for a day. Students will have the opportunity to tour the law school, meet with current diverse law school students, learn about the importance of diversity in the legal community, have lunch and tour a local law firm, and end the day touring the federal court house.

This is an annual program. Current dates will be announced.

Law and Advocacy Program Week - High School

Through workshops, guest speakers and field trips, students will gain hands-on experience and observe first-hand what it is like to be a lawyer. Students will interact with judges, lawyers and law students, and observe actual court proceedings. Students will learn trial advocacy skills and the week will culminate with a mock trial competition followed by an awards ceremony and reception with family and friends.

This is an annual program. Current dates will be announced.

Accessing the Legal Profession (ALP) Law School Application Mini-Camp - College

The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the Office of Admissions have partnered to address long-standing educational gaps for those from underrepresented backgrounds who are interested in attending law school. This shared vision has led to the creation of the joint committee, the Accessing the Legal Profession (ALP) Committee. Its focus is to provide law school applicants from traditionally underrepresented populations the tools to overcome barriers they may face on their path to law school.

Scheduled for the first time in 2021, this annual program will be a five-day virtual mini-camp seeking to provide attendees detailed information sessions on every step of the law school application process. These sessions will take place via Zoom, which will allow our sessions to reach more of a national audience.

The sessions will include: Day 1: The Nuts & Bolts of the Law School Application; Day 2: The Law School Resume; Day 3: The Personal Statement; Day 4: The Diversity Statement; Day 5: Financing the Journey.

The 2021 program will take place on June 21 - 25.
