Rawle-SULC Partnership

 Rawle and Henderson LLP and Southern University Law Center have formed a ground breaking partnership to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal profession by sponsoring a monthly speakers series and establishing a mentor program for law students at SULC, whose mission is to provide a high quality legal education  to underrepresented racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups.

SULC Seminar

Rawle & Henderson LLP is a proud partner of a speakers series with Southern University Law Center,  which is devoted to “providing access and opportunity to a diverse group of students from underrepresented racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups to obtain a high quality legal education.” The law school webinar series will be held monthly and is designed to help students through every facet of law school and to assist with making decisions regarding their future practices of law. John C. McMeekin II opened the series with a webinar on September 23, 2020, which focused on developing law students and providing them with the tools to plan, succeed and enter the practice of law during these constantly changing and economically challenging times. 

As the oldest law firm in the Nation,  Rawle & Henderson LLP is committed to developing and supporting future leaders of the bar and making the legal profession more accessible to everyone regardless of race, sex, national origin or sexual orientation.
