Strength in Diversity

At Delaware Law, knowledge comes from many sources. You will be immersed in a learning environment that welcomes diversity and considers a wide range of perspectives to be one of the school’s strengths. You will learn from a diverse faculty and a student community that appreciates intellectual curiosity and respects different points of view.

We value the interests and abilities that each student brings to our law school, the profession, and the broader society. To further demonstrate our commitment to diversity, Delaware Law supports the Law School Admission Council’s DiscoverLaw.org campaign and the Council on Legal Education Opportunity. Both initiatives seek to make a legal education more accessible for all students. We also offer a welcoming environment for first-generation law students.

Diversity Defined

Our Office of Multicultural Affairs defines diversity very broadly in supporting students who self-identify across a broad spectrum:

  • age
  • culture
  • ethnicity/race
  • first-generation college educated
  • gender
  • religion
  • sexual Identity/orientation
  • socioeconomic status

The Delaware Law Student Bar Association supports this goal by sponsoring organizations that encourage a diverse student body.

ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund

The ABA Center for Racial & Ethnic Diversity encourages students to apply for scholarship grants. Details are available at americanbar.org.

“The legal profession is, rightly, well-regarded and held in high esteem – but exclusivity diminishes, rather than enhances, its reputation. It needs to be open to all if we are to widen the pool of talented lawyers for the future. ”

-David Edmonds, Legal Services Board Chairman
