Our Urban Education Initiative

Several years ago, the Firm introduced its Urban Education Initiative to expand our partnerships with public schools in New York and Los Angeles.

UEI aims to enhance the pipeline of students of color who enter college and the legal profession. Since its launch, more than 500 Simpson Thacher employees—from junior staff to senior partners— have hosted visits by groups of public high school and middle school students. More than 1,000 students have participated in these enrichment and college-readiness programs that range from mock trials to résumé-writing and interviewing workshops.
