Law students participating in the TBA Young Lawyers Division's Diversity Leadership Institute (DLI) met today in Memphis for a final program and graduation. The class attended the annual Lawyers Lunch and then spent the afternoon at the National Civil Rights Museum learning about the role the city of Memphis played in the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. On Saturday, the group will hear from a panel of young lawyers discussing what they wish they had known when transitioning from law school to law practice and will have the opportunity to do some “speed networking.” Later in the day, the class will participate in a cleanup and painting project at a local Boys and Girls Club. The class graduation ceremony also will take place this weekend in conjunction with the TBA’s annual convention. Learn more about the DLI
