MetadataShow full item record
This essay outlines a pipeline program designed to increase minority interest and enrollment in graduate school programs, which was implemented at Texas Tech University School of Law. The goal of this essay is to share my experiences with the program and to encourage other schools to adopt similar programs. The practice exercises included in this essay were successful in creating interest in the legal profession among the high school students involved in the program. These exercises also introduce the students to legal concepts and give the students an opportunity to see first-hand the training of lawyers. The last section of this essay discusses future goals and other necessary programs required to achieve the ultimate goal of increasing the number of minorities in both higher education and the legal profession.
