Baker Botts is committed to improving diversity both at our firm and in the legal profession in general. Over the years, we have sponsored several pipeline programs that help introduce minorities into the legal profession. The scholarship opportunity available through Law Preview simply expands that pipeline by providing admitted law students with a solid foundation upon which to begin their studies. If you plan to attend Duke University School of Law and are a member of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession, I strongly encourage you to submit an application.
