Established in 2001, the King Hall Outreach Program (KHOP) is a unique initiative that helps college students from underrepresented communities prepare for the law school admissions process. In addition to providing mentoring and pre-law advising during the school year, the program hosts eligible college juniors and seniors for a series of weekend sessions in which students gain valuable knowledge about the law school admission process, learn writing, analytical, and logical reasoning skills, develop study techniques for taking the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), and explore career paths available to law school graduates.
Among KHOP program alumni, ninety-nine percent have graduated from a four-year institution. Forty-one percent are enrolled or have graduated from a law program. In 2014, the King Hall Outreach Program received the California State Bar Education Pipeline Award for its important role in diversifying the legal profession and in 2016 the American Bar Association Council for Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Educational Pipeline awarded the program its prestigious Raymond Pace and Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Award For Excellence in Pipeline Diversity. The Alexander Award recognizes organizations that demonstrate success working along the educational pipeline in a collaborative approach involving more than one segment of the continuum from preschool to high school to college to law school to the practice.
