SALT/Denver Law Pipeline Conference
The University of Denver Sturm College of Law
Friday, March 28, 2014
“The journey through the pipeline to the legal profession is indeed long.
For some the pipeline is rather straight and unobstructed. But for others,
it is a winding maze with detours, dead ends, obstructions and holes.”
— Dorothy H. Evensen and Carla D. Pratt,
The End of the Pipeline: A Journey of Recognition for African
Americans Entering the Legal Profession (2012)
“[W]ithout a substantial increase in the pool of qualified, underrepresented
minorities interested in law school admission, the profession will remain
apart from the population it represents.”
— Sarah E. Redfield,
The Education Pipeline to the Professions: Programs That Work to
Increase Diversity (2012)
You are invited to join a conversation on pipeline efforts to increase
diversity in legal education and the legal profession.
The program is designed for students, mentors, law school
admissions officers, undergraduate prelaw advisors, and others
interested in the pipeline to the legal profession.
The Clinical Law Review will hold its next Clinical Writers’ Workshop on
Saturday, September 27, 2014, at NYU Law School.
The Workshop will provide an opportunity for clinical teachers who are
writing about any subject (clinical pedagogy, substantive law,
interdisciplinary analysis, empirical work, etc.) to meet with other
clinicians writing on related topics to discuss their works-in-progress and
brainstorm ideas for further development of their articles. Attendees will
meet in small groups organized, to the extent possible, by the subject
matter in which they are writing. Each group will “workshop” the draft of
each member of the group.
Participation in the Workshop requires the submission of a paper because the
workshop takes the form of small group sessions in which all members of the
group comment on each other’s manuscripts. By June 30, all applicants will
need to submit a mini-draft or prospectus, 3-5 pages in length, of the
article they intend to present at the workshop. Full drafts of the articles
will be due by September 1, 2014.
As in the previous Clinical Law Review Workshops, participants will not have
to pay an admission or registration fee but participants will have to
arrange and pay for their own travel and lodging. To assist those who wish
to participate but who need assistance for travel and lodging, NYU Law
School has committed to provide 10 scholarships of up to $750 per person to
help pay for travel and lodging. The scholarships are designed for those
clinical faculty who receive little or no travel support from their law
schools and who otherwise would not be able to attend this conference
without scholarship support. Applicants for scholarships will be asked to
submit, with their 3-5 page prospectus, by June 30, a proposed budget for
travel and lodging and a brief statement of why the scholarship would be
helpful in supporting their attendance at this conference. The Board will
review all scholarship applications and issue decisions about scholarships
in early July. The scholarships are conditioned upon recipients’ meeting all
requirements for workshop participation, including timely submission of
If you have any comments or suggestions you would like to send us, we would
