2019 Native American Pipeline to Law Initiative

From June 26-30, 2019, 34 prospective Native American pre-law applicants from across Indian Country attended the Native American Pipeline to Law Initiative at UC Berkeley in Berkeley, C.A. During this five-day intensive program, students heard from law school admissions professionals, law professors, law students, and more about applying to and attending law school. This year, we were fortunate enough for Olympian Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota) to surprise us!

The Pipeline’s mission is to provide serious preparation for Native law applicants, as well as to connect applicants to the invaluable resources and support they need from professionals. The program even includes an introduction to and support for taking the LSAT. Former participants of this program have gone on to complete PLSI and law school.

The Pipeline to Law Initiative will be held again during the summer of 2020. If you’re interested in providing financial support to this program or have more questions, please contact Kate Rosier.

About the Conference

The Pathways to the Legal Profession Conference aims to increase the number of competitive Native law school applicants nationwide. Recent scholarship by the American Bar Association and others establishes that Native Americans are disproportionately underrepresented in the legal profession. We encourage advisors, educators, and school administrators to attend this training to help identify, advise, and support the next generation of indigenous attorneys.

Advisors

Advisors with an array of titles and responsibilities are encouraged to attend.  This includes community members such as teachers and youth mentors, as well as those who specifically advise American Indian and Alaska Native students interested in applying to law school.

Travel

Lodging and travel reimbursements are available for Tribal Education Departments and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
