"Blueprint JD is passionate about diversity in the legal profession. We believe the key to achieving diversity is through the students themselves, who too often lack the information, resources, and connections necessary to achieve their career goals. Blueprint JD bridges this gap, offering tailored career information and advice to diverse law students. By giving students access to helpful, relevant guidance, Blueprint JD helps diverse law students succeed in their legal careers."
