Emerging Leaders in the Law

About the Program

Emerging Leaders in the Law (ELL) is a program that seeks to increase equal access to justice for all people with the belief that in order to truly have equal access to justice for all people, all identities must be represented in the legal system.  SLS seeks to advance this goal by inspiring the next generation of leaders in the law. People of color, Queer and Trans folks, people living with disabilities, and women must have a seat at the table to achieve our highest aspirations.

Undergraduate Externship
