What We Do  /  Equity  /  California LAW

A diversity educational pipeline from 9th grade to law school.

California LAW is a program created to connect, communicate, collaborate, and coordinate with programs that are part of the educational pipeline for diverse students into the legal profession or law-related careers. California LAW is housed at the Foundation for California Community Colleges and is closely aligned with the Foundation’s strategic goal to expand student access, success, educational, and career outcomes through the promotion of student-centered resources and tools. 

California LAW consists of 21 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, California LAW includes members of the Community College Pathway to Law School initiative with 29 community colleges throughout the state, 9 undergraduate universities, and their law schools, resulting in an educational pipeline into the legal profession.
