In an effort to increase diversity amongst attorneys, Stillman College has forged a relationship with Southern Illinois University Carbondale. In a press release shared with the media that Stillman College has “signed a memorandum of understanding to help students from the historically Black liberal arts college enroll and earn a degree from the SIU School of Law, with the aim of diversifying the legal profession.”

Stillman College President, Dr. Cynthia Warrick, said “this program will allow selected students to participate in a summer pre-law program to expose them to the rigor and policies of law school admissions.”

In addition, the first HBCU to establish a “student pipeline program” with Southern Illinois University School of Law is Stillman College. The arrangement is that Stillman College “will engage in collaborative academic activities with the SIU School of Law that promote a path for Stillman College students to enroll in the law school and earn their law degree.”

Camille Davidson, Dean of SIU’s School of Law noted that “building partnerships with HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions, like Stillman, will help SIU School of Law become more diverse.”
