Shook Hardy Bacon Diversity Writing Program Info Session

Shook Hardy Bacon is committed to diversity & inclusion in the legal profession and its own practice. This led them to establish the SHB Diversity Writing Program, which focuses on helping diverse law students develop and strengthen their legal research and writing skills during their second year of Law School. All self-identified, racially/ethnically diverse, first-year students from the University of Kansas School of Law are eligible to apply for the SHB Diversity Writing Program. The program will begin in September 2013 and run through the first week of December 2013. Come learn about this program and enjoy lunch with SHB attorneys. RSVP on Symplicity.
