TJSL program to be honored by state bar

The State Bar of California has selected Thomas Jefferson School of Law's CLIMB (Crawford Legal Institute Mentorship Bond Program) to receive the 2013 State Bar of California Education Pipeline Award on Oct. 12.

The program is a collaboration between Crawford High School, one of the most diverse high schools in San Diego County, and TJSL to encourage and mentor at-risk high school students in law and higher education pursuits. It was co-founded by professors Bill Slomanson and Maurice Dyson three years ago.

TJSL students Diana Vasquez and Lee Vernon have helped with the program along with Dyson, Slomanson and TJSL-Crawford Law Academy Director Steve Luttbeg.
