Diversity Pipeline Project

Project Description

The Diversity Pipeline Project seeks to work in partnership with Arizona's attorneys, schools, colleges, organizations, etc. to encourage young people, especially people in historically underrepresented populations, to consider careers in the legal profession.

Project Objective

Through classroom visits, volunteer attorneys and law students teach lessons and lead activities designed to increase students' knowledge and interest in the law and legal careers.

History of Program

The State Bar of Arizona's Diversity Pipeline Project grew out of the Bar's Diversity Task Force recommendations.  The Bar Leadership Institute, elementary school outreach visits and annual summer law camp in Phoenix and Tucson are elements of the pipeline project.  The pipeline project is an important component of the State Bar of Arizona's overall diversity efforts.
