Next Generation Líderes (NGL)

A program of the CAP LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE sponsored by Nixon Peabody LLP

Developing the leadership potential of our youth has been a core mission for LatinoJustice PRLDEF since its origins five decades ago. Our Next Generation Líderes program matches high school students, undergraduates and recent grads interested in legal training and careers with practicing attorneys for one-on-one mentoring.           

In addition, the year-long program offers monthly group events to share with students information on law school, resources and opportunities in the legal field, and to build networks that will serve them in years to come.           

Applications for our 2024-2025 Mentorship Program are now closed!
