With an eye towards diversifying the legal academy’s administrative staff and faculty, the SALT board of governors voted to create a new committee—New Teachers’ Pipeline—to encourage law school students, fellows, and practitioners of color, LGBT, women, and other underrepresented groups to consider a career in legal academia.
Want to Ask Some Questions? SALT is committed to helping the next generation of progressive law teachers and scholars enter the academy. Besides supporting and co-sponsoring pipeline events like the ones featured here, our New Teachers Pipeline Committee is available to discuss with you any questions or concerns you might have as you approach a career in the academy.
SALT is an organization for all involved in legal education --- clinicians, classroom professors, deans, administrators, fellows, librarians, adjuncts and legal writing teachers – who are dedicated to justice, diversity and academic excellence.
