The Bay Area Urban Debate League (“BAUDL”) is a debate mentoring program that currently serves hundreds of low-income and minority students at 22 Bay Area schools. Studies show that these programs improve literacy, GPA, graduation rates, and provide a host of other direct benefits to the participants, their schools, and the community.

Fox Rothschild LLP is proud to be among 16 law firms competing in BAUDL’s “Champions of Diversity” fundraising campaign. The initial round is this week, ending Friday, April 1st, during which the firms will compete to see which one can raise the most money and the most money per attorney in their Bay Area offices. There will then be a second round among the top three finalists. The winner gets a full-page ad.

You can find updated results here. If you’re moved to give, you can do so on behalf of any of the law firms listed (such as Fox Rothschild!) or you can donate to the unaffiliated group. Every bit helps and it’s a very worthy cause.
