"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."

"Why are mother lawyers so unhappy? Why do they leave the profession? Do they really ‘want’ to leave, or do they feel pushed out? Are they happy once they do leave? Do they hope to return to the profession? What will it take for them to return? What, if anything, would have prevented them from leaving in the first place? How have those who do ‘opt out’ been able to afford that decision – especially in light of their often crushing student loans? This blawg will examine these questions, and hopes to become a gathering spot for all mother-lawyers."
