LEO Program Begins

LEO students

Launched in 1967, the Legal Education Opportunities Program has become a national model for recruiting and retaining students of color. Commonly known as LEO, the trailblazing program has graduated more than 1,500 attorneys, who actively serve their legal communities in a multitude of ways. As role models, mentors, and scholarship donors, LEO alumni also support the next generation of lawyers. (Pictured, a group of LEO students in 2017, the 50th anniversary of the program.)
