This committee organizes and implements a summer clerkship program for first-year law students from the three Houston law schools to encourage equal opportunities for minority lawyers in the legal profession. Provides educational service and support programs for minority law students.

Beginning this bar year, the committee’s name will change to “Diversity & Inclusion Committee,” and the committee will also coordinate a diversity summit and diversity award.
