PIPELINE PROGRAMS

The Council on Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO) was founded In 1968, as a non-profit project of the ABA Fund for Justice and Education to expand opportunities for minority and low-income students to attend law school. 

In Legal Color, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to increase law school diversity by providing inspiration, information, and support to prospective law students of color.

For People of Color, Inc. is a nonprofit that provides free, high-quality law school admissions consulting services to prospective law school applicants in California. 

Practicing attorneys for Law Students Program, Inc. (PALS) matches minority law students with volunteer lawyers who serve as mentors to provide career guidance for minorities in the legal profession.


“Sí, Se Puede” is a phrase born of farmworkers, who, under the leadership of the UFW, César Chávez, and Dolores Huerta, fought valiantly for equal protection under the law.  As a result of the efforts of the UFW, “Sí, Se Puede” has become well known as a call that engenders hope and inspiration in those who face similar battles. We thank the UFW, whom we acknowledge to be the sole and exclusive owner of the Trademark SI SE PUEDE, for granting us a limited license to use“Sí, Se Puede” in connection with our efforts to recruit, in Colorado, students of Hispanic or Latino descent for our law school pipeline program. For more information about the programs offered by the UFW, please see UFW’s webpage (www.ufw.org); UFW Foundation’s webpage (www.ufwfoundation.org); and UFWF’s immigration services webpage (www.sisepuede.org)
