Abstract:     
A century of legalized racism, followed by decades of institutionalized racism, has resulted in the under representation of minorities, particularly African-Americans, in the legal profession. Circumstance has made it challenging for these individuals to succeed. And yet, some have done so against the odds. Recognition of the need to open the door, give a chance, and provide opportunities that can make a difference highlight the value of institutional efforts to "shape the tributary" or "build the pipeline."
