Insights: News New Facebook Legal Scholars Program Helps Diverse Students Navigate the First Year of Law School

Santa Clara Law Magazine

"This program was the brainchild of Yendelela Holston, partner and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP. “We have had a strong, successful program in place for four years with another client from which to model our Facebook program,” said Holston. “Our goal is to help students in navigating law school, especially those who may not have a network to whom they can turn for guidance. By providing tools for academic excellence, opportunities for meaningful employment, and a network of diverse role models and mentors, we hope to give scholars a solid foundation for success throughout their legal careers. It is important for the firm, which values diversity, to be actively involved in increasing the diversity of the legal pipeline,” said Holston."
