Baker & Hostetler is the inaugural law firm sponsor of Georgetown University Law Center’s RISE pipeline program.

The program selects incoming law students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in law school and the legal profession, including racial, ethnic, geographic, socioeconomic and first-generation-college backgrounds. Through an immersive pre-orientation program, participants get early access to the law school classroom environment and develop skills that will help them succeed inside and outside the classroom, according to Baker & Hostetler’s announcement.
