Equipping diverse law students with the practical tools to succeed in law school and beyond
Law school is difficult for everyone, but many diverse students carry heavier burdens.
Our Elevate scholarship program eases that load by preparing law students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to succeed academically and land competitive internships.
Elevate offers 1L students academic support, professional training, and mentoring in small groups, which allows students to receive the individual attention they deserve.
It’s been proven that diverse teams are more successful teams. By partnering with both law students and legal employers, Elevate seeks to strengthen the legal profession. Diverse law students can develop the lawyering skills needed for career success while legal employers can develop relationships with the students who will drive their organizations and the legal field forward into the future.
We train students on the skills that have the greatest impact on success in law school and provide detailed feedback on practical exercises
“I cannot recommend Sui Generis enough to you as a law student. It is an absolutely incredible experience, the work is 100% worth it, and you will thank yourself, like I thank myself, for taking the course when you are done.”
Students have gotten a 4.0 GPA, made Law Review, ranked in the top 10% of their class, improved from a B- to an A in legal writing, and landed prestigious judicial clerkships and professional internships
By partnering with us, you make it possible for one or more diverse students to get full access to our extensive offerings, including our on-demand content, live lessons, and small group and individual training sessions.
Want to do more? Our students want to learn from professionals like you. Give an hour of your time as a guest speaker to educate them about your career, or have members of your team volunteer as mentors either individually or partner with a client to jointly mentor a student.
We are looking for diverse students committed to learning and developing the skills necessary to succeed in law school and beyond. Whether you're part of a historically underrepresented group, for example, by virtue of your race, gender, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background, we invite you to apply.
