Black Lawyers Aligned in the Quest for Excellence (BLAQUE) focuses on mentoring, networking, and professional development initiatives to support the recruitment and advancement of Black attorneys.  The group works closely with campus law student organizations, hosts a variety of workshops, seminars and events for our associates and summer associate classes, cultivates community and pipeline outreach through mentorship, and supports a variety of pro bono projects. 

BLAQUE-inspired initiatives have included advising high school students in the Youth About Business leadership training program, participation in the firm’s Legal Outreach program, fundraising efforts for Haiti relief after the earthquake of January 2010, and on-campus law school recruiting initiatives.   

In addition to our work within the firm, our efforts extend to many diverse communities.  Below is a list of several organizations that have been helpful to our community outreach and initiatives.
