Pitt Law Black Alumni Committee

The Pitt Law Black Alumni Committee is dedicated to strengthening the professional and social network of Black alumni from Pitt Law across the country and around the world. It is the intent of the committee to provide a support network for Black Pitt law students as well as the Black alumni of the law school. Through this network, the Committee aims to promote and cultivate diversity within the Pitt Law school community.

 

Voting Ambassador Program (ACLU-PA & Common Cause-PA)

  • Volunteers are needed to become voting ambassadors to inform voters in their networks about the latest information regarding the 2020 election, and

  • Volunteers are needed to monitor polling places on Election Day.  Common Cause is running the field program.  You do not have to be a lawyer to volunteer!

 
The PBA Minority Bar Committee invites you to participate in our Virtual Diversity Summit! This timely program, developed with the collaboration of the Montgomery Bar Association, is a must attend for all attorneys and bar leaders as our profession examines its role in the greater movement for equality. We are living through a moment in which larger changes are possible and we must do better. We encourage participation from all lawyers, law firm staff, bar leaders and law students.
