Strengthening Minority Involvement in Law-Related Education. Technical Assistance Bulletin, No. 9.
Perry, George S., Jr.
Educators concerned with law-related education (LRE) increasingly have recognized the need to ensure the participation of diverse groups of people in LRE programs. In 1988 the American Bar Association's Special Committee for Citizenship began the Minority Involvement in Law Education Initiative. Among its purposes was to promote and encourage the involvement of racial and ethnic minority students, teachers, and legal professionals in law-related education programs. Since the initiative was begun, minority involvement conferences with participants from 13 states have been held. This article describes the benefits derived from these conferences, who attends and what happens at a typical conference, and activities that have been undertaken by various states in following-up the conferences.
