There are a number of us in academic success who also participate in our law schools’ pipeline efforts with public education, charter schools, colleges, and/or local bar groups. Our goal is to interest minority students in K-12 and university to stay in school and continue their education. Hopefully, a number of the students with whom we work will eventually enroll in law school and increase diversity in the legal profession.
The Education Law/Wingspread Conference (hosted by University of Southern Maine) will be held in Portland, Me July 19 – 22. There is a special Wingspread Consortium track during several days of the conference for those who work with pipeline efforts in law schools. The conference will also interest those of you with specialties in education law. You can refer to the conference website at Education Law/Wingspread Conference or contact Sarah Redfield firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I will be at the conference with my pipeline team members from our main TTU campus and a local high school. We will be presenting at several sessions. I hope that we will see some of you there. (Amy Jarmon)
