Cecilia Zhou, a first-year Chinese-Canadian student at Emory University School of Law, wants to be a lawyer. But “in large part, I am still clueless as to what lawyers do,” she said.

Legal education company PracticePro, founded by a Big Law ex-pat, is trying to reduce that uncertainty for diverse law students such as Zhou. The organization is partnering with law firms and in-house departments for its 1L Diversity Scholar Program, a mentorship program intended to develop diverse legal talent beginning in the first year of law school.
