African Americans, who represent approximately 13 percent of the population are only about 4 percent of the practicing bar in the U.S. What factors aided African Americans who achieved the status of lawyer in their journey through the pipeline? Two Penn State professors, Professor and Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs at Penn State Law Carla Pratt and Professor of Education Dr. Dorothy Evensen, teamed up to explore that question in The End of the Pipeline: A Journey of Recognition for African Americans Entering the Legal Profession (Carolina Academic Press 2011).

Pratt discusses the implications of their research including the importance of the role of educators, affirmative action, and affinity groups in overcoming some of the the hurdles Africatn Amercians face at every stage of the educational pipeline.
