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.
Our Office of Multicultural Affairs defines diversity very broadly in supporting students who self-identify across a broad spectrum:
The Delaware Law Student Bar Association supports this goal by sponsoring organizations that encourage a diverse student body.
The ABA Center for Racial & Ethnic Diversity encourages students to apply for scholarship grants. Details are available at americanbar.org.
AccessLex is offering a new pipeline program for aspiring law students from underrepresented racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
