Initiative Aims to Find Future Diverse Lawyers in High School — from by Meghan Tribe


A new program seeks to build a pipeline of diverse future lawyers while they are still in high school, with help from Big Law firms.

Thrive Scholars, a Los Angeles-founded organization that supports high-achieving low-income students of color, has started a new track aimed at creating a greater pipeline of black and Latinx attorneys to work at top law firms.

Most programs to build a more diverse legal field start with students in college or law school, but Thrive’s program aims to find ambitious future lawyers earlier.
