To establish a pipeline of diverse students from high schools, community colleges, four-year institutions, and law schools into law or law-related careers so that the legal profession reflects the diverse population of the State of California.


A diverse legal profession.

California LAW is a California public benefit corporation in the process of becoming a 501(c)(3) and created to be the foundational structure that will connect, communicate, collaborate, and coordinate the programs that are part of the educational pipeline for diverse students into the legal profession or law-related careers.  It consists of 22 high school law academies created under the California Partnership Academy model in a unique partnership between the State Bar of California and the California Department of Education.  Additionally, it includes members of the Community College Pathway to Law School initiative with 27 community colleges throughout the state, eight undergraduate universities and their law schools resulting in an educational pipeline into the legal profession created under the leadership of the State Bar of California’s Council on Access and Fairness.
