A new competition debuting this week enables minority and women law students a chance to step into associates’ shoes and demonstrate to hiring partners and general counsel their skills at tackling real-world legal problems.

At the Law Student Diversity Case Competition in Cincinnati, teams of students from seven Midwest law schools will handle simulated client assignments while law firm partners, general counsel and bar association leaders from the area evaluate their work. The first-of-its-kind event starting Friday aims to promote the hiring of women and minority law students by employers who get the chance to see them in action.
