Munger, Tolles & Olson raised over $12,000 in the Bay Area Urban Debate League (BAUDL) Champions of Diversity Challenge, earning the title of Bronze Champion. Attorney donations from all three Munger Tolles offices and an additional grant from the Paul Davis MTO Associate Fund provided funds to support BAUDL and its mission to make competitive debate available to every secondary school student in the Bay Area.
The annual 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 attorneys Adam I. Kaplan and Elizabeth A. Kim accepted the award on behalf of the firm at BAUDL’s annual gala on May 25, 2017. The firm is a longtime supporter of BAUDL, and Mr. Kaplan serves on the Legal Pipeline Committee of the BAUDL’s Advisory Council.
