To redress what it terms a “persistent lack of diversity” in the legal profession, one of the nation’s largest corporate law firms — and long the top-grossing firm on the Am Law 100 — will commit $9.6 million over the next decade toward an honors program designed to encourage and support minority students at the City College of New York to become attorneys.

The Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom Honors Program in Legal Studies is set to begin on the 14,000-student Harlem campus this fall. Freshman and sophomores will be recruited for what will eventually involve 100 juniors and seniors in a two-year curriculum of course work and seminars to complement the school’s range of undergraduate academic majors.
