Munger, Tolles & Olson was again named the Silver Champion in the Bay Area Urban Debate League (BAUDL) Champions of Diversity Challenge. Attorney donations and a grant from the Paul Davis MTO Associate Fund totaling nearly $13,000 were donated to support BAUDL and its mission to make competitive debate available to every secondary school student in the Bay Area.
The challenge invites Bay Area law firms to compete to raise money to support BAUDL programs, providing the means to open up new doors for Bay Area youth while also helping to diversify the legal pipeline.
Munger Tolles attorney Adam I. Kaplan accepted the award on behalf of the firm at BAUDL’s annual gala on June 1, 2016. The firm is a longtime supporter of BAUDL, and Mr. Kaplan serves on the Legal Pipeline Committee of the BAUDL’s Advisory Council.
