Posted & filed under Blog, Diversity, Legal Education.

SALT promotes social justice in the teaching and practice of law, including pipeline work to support and encourage people of color and others from marginalized communities to enter law school, law practice and law teaching.  On April 9, 2016, SALT collaborated with students, faculty and staff at Elon University School of Law in Greensboro, North Carolina, to host a B.A. to J.D. Pipeline Event focusing on intercultural competence and education.  Students from local high schools and community colleges were among those invited to attend.  The event included panels on The Law School Journey, Professionalism and Intercultural Engagement, and Tips and Strategies for Applying to Law School.  Former SALT Co-President Olympia Duhart (Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law) was delighted to represent SALT at the event.  Thanks to all at Elon Law who helped make this event a tremendous success, including Dean Luke Bierman, student organizer Blakeney Brown and Associate Dean for Experiential Learning and Leadership Faith Rivers James.
