In Illinois, 91 1Ls will now be better prepared to start law school after they participated in Jumpstart, a program of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism.

Ann Claire Williams, a retired U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois and current of counsel at Jones Day, created Jumpstart—a pre-law school preparatory program for first-generation law students and those from communities that are historically underrepresented in the legal profession—in the early 2000s, according to 2Civility’s announcement.
