The Yale Law School Launchpad Scholars Program, powered by Latham & Watkins, is focused on increasing opportunity and equity in education and the legal profession. With rising law school application costs and other barriers limiting access to the legal profession, a law degree can be out of reach for some students. This innovative program aims to ensure that excellent applicants from all backgrounds can maximize their potential as law students and legal professionals, empowering them to become leaders in their future careers.
Participants will receive tools and resources — including one-on-one mentorship, LSAT preparation, and step-by-step guidance — so they can successfully apply to the law schools of their choosing. The goal of the program is to further diversify the legal profession and ensure that excellent applicants from all backgrounds are able to maximize their potential as law students, legal professionals, and future leaders.
