NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program


A partnership between Street Law and NALP, this program partners law firms with diverse groups of high school students. The goal is to teach the students about the law and legal careers, encourage them to pursue legal careers, and offer support in that pursuit.

About the Program

In 2008 NALP and Street Law, Inc. partnered to create the NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program. This pipeline program is designed to provide information about the law and the legal profession to high school students.

Participating law firms are paired with local high schools. Volunteers from the firm teach students about substantive areas of the law and then host a one-day conference at the firm. Law firm participants are given the opportunity to work with a diverse group of interested young people in their community, and high school students learn about new career paths. The goal is to encourage talented and diverse students to consider legal careers.
