Welcome to the Minorities in the Profession Committee
Established in the mid 1980s, the Minorities in the Profession Committee continues to foster access to the legal profession for students, law students and legal professionals through its programming and activities. Over the years, programs such as the High School law conference, Minority Corporate Counsel Program, 1L Summer Associate Program, Bar Exam Study scholarships and the Bar Exam Writing Clinic have provided opportunities and support for minorities interested in the practice of law.
Currently the Minorities in the Profession Committee, or MIP, has the following areas of focus:
- Diversity Conference
- 1L Summer Associate Program
- Implementation of Diversity Task Force Recommendations
- Preparing law students for the practice of law
- Expanding the committee's web presence
