DePaul Law joins Diverse Attorney Pipeline Program

DePaul University College of Law is proud to announce its inclusion in the Diverse Attorney Pipeline Program (DAPP) and its continuing commitment to diversity in the legal profession. This year, DAPP expanded its program to DePaul, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law to support its mission of enhancing opportunities for women of color law students.

The program selected eleven first-year law students as DAPP scholars for the 2016-2017 academic year. They will receive the support of the organization in obtaining summer associate positions at law firms and corporations. Throughout the year, DAPP also will offer large-scale professional development programs and empowerment webinars and programming across the country.

Founded in 2013, DAPP was created as a nonprofit organization to respond to the overall decrease in women of color legal professionals. It began as a pilot program at Loyola University Chicago during the 2014-2015 academic year, and continued at John Marshall School of Law the subsequent year.
