Description

Book Summary:

Despite decades of working to improve the diversity of the American Bar, minority attorneys make up only 10% of the profession. In The Education Pipeline to the Professions, Professor Sarah Redfield, a national expert in education law and diversity issues, brings together fourteen exemplary programs that work to change the face of the legal profession. From preschool to partner, these programs provide opportunities for students and lawyers along the educational pipeline. Professor Redfield and her coauthors highlight successful pipeline programs, offering keys to effective practices and providing blueprints for replicating programs that have demonstrated rigor, relevance, and results. Each chapter is written by a leader in the field with sustained real-life experience in improving outcomes for underrepresented minority students. Chapter authors discuss their goals, their successes, and their concerns, as well as their budgets and organizational structures; each offers overall reflections and future help to those who are seeking to implement a pipeline program without reinventing the wheel.
