UH Law Center’s Pre-Law Pipeline Programs expand opportunities for first generation college students

Dean Class

June 13, 2024 — University of Houston Law Center Dean Leonard M. Baynes recently taught a class on "Race and the Law" to students enrolled in UHLC’s Pre-Law Pipeline Programs, a race neutral initiative aimed at increasing the representation of law students from low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented backgrounds.

“It was an enriching experience, as the students brought a wealth of diverse perspectives and a deep commitment to understanding the complexities of these legal issues. We are so grateful for the leadership of Mariesha Keys, Pre-Law Pipeline Programs Director, Professor Meredith Duncan, Assistant Dean for Opportunity and Community, and all who support to make this program possible,” said Baynes.
