The Passion and Skill to Make a Change

The Weil Legal Innovators Program engages incoming law school students in addressing some of the most pressing social and legal challenges in our communities today.

Weil Legal Innovators is comprised of a cohort of 10 incoming law school students who plan to attend one of our WLI Law School Partners. Innovators defer their first year of law school to work at one of WLI's sponsoring nonprofit organizations, executing a strategic initiative designed to leverage their business acumen and commitment to public service, while amplifying the impact of the sponsoring nonprofit.
