In 2022, the Program saw a record shattering 85 student applicants from seven law schools and was able to place 47 students from five law schools across 44 employers. With growth comes increased costs and an even greater opportunity to positively shape the careers of budding young lawyers and increase the diversity of Pittsburgh’s legal community on a broader scale. The Program is making several adjustments to expand with the needs and opportunities presented. Among these changes are the implementation of cohort-building technologies, greater immersion in the ACBA through student memberships, increased enrichment and social activities, and showcasing some of the best that the Pittsburgh region has to offer. Events and outings are being planned to encourage students to fall in love with Pittsburgh and ultimately join our bar locally. Any region’s greatest assets are its people, and students will network with employers and diverse attorneys to help form a community to support them after graduation and establish roots in the area.
