Description: 
From August 2019 - November 2019, the New York City Bar Association's Office for Diversity and Inclusion facilitated a study exploring the effectiveness of pipeline programs for Black and Hispanic/Latinx law students who graduated from New York State law schools. The challenges for many aspiring Black and Latinx/Hispanic lawyers originate from academic, economic, and systemic challenges arising in early stages of their lives and educational journeys. In a two-part series, principal investigator Ashley Bernal, along with pipeline program leaders and study participants, will discuss the findings of groundbreaking report, The Diversity Gap: Black and Latinx Representation Disparities in the Legal Pipeline, to help contextualize the role that identifying as Black and Hispanic/Latinx can play in accessing the legal profession via pipeline programs.
