The "Explore the Law" program at Portland State University helps students explore, prepare for, and pursue careers in law. A partnership between Portland State University, the Oregon State Bar, and the Multnomah Bar Association, the program connects students with role models, assists them in identifying ways to prepare for and finance law school, and helps them access pre-law advice and other resources. As part of its contribution to the program, DWT sponsored a student essay contest this past year, with the prize being a free LSAT prep course. Students were asked to write 2-3 pages answering this question: "What are the most effective steps that Oregon's legal community could take today to increase diversity of the legal profession?" The winner, Christine Selvy, received the award from our Portland associate Alan Galloway at an end-of-the-year Explore the Law ceremony.
