Skadden, Arps to Help Minorities Enter the Law

The New York Law Journal (4/16/20008) reports
that the firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
has launched a $9.6 million Honors Program in Legal Studies
at the City College of New York to help more minorities enter
the practice of law. According to the article, the program
will eventually encompass a "two-year curriculum of course
work and seminars to complement the school's range of under-
graduate academic majors."
