Diversity Leadership Institute Holds First, Abbreviated Session

Despite a weekend of terrible weather, the Diversity Leadership Institute held its opening session during the annual TBA Leadership Conference, Jan. 22-23. Amidst the snow, four students were able to attend in-person and the rest participated through conference call. Diversity Committee Chair Amber Floyd and Vice Chair John Rice lead the group in an abbreviated presentation on Friday, and the students who had made it into Nashville joined the Young Lawyers Division Board meeting on Saturday.
The Diversity Leadership Institute is a six-month leadership and mentoring program for Tennessee law students. Now in its sixth year, the program is designed to help students develop skills to succeed; empower students to contribute more to the legal community; match students to mentors in a diverse variety of practice areas; and build relationships among students of diverse backgrounds.
