Understanding Diversity--The Legal Perspective
Saturday, January 24th
9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Diversity is at the heart of the Southwestern community. It’s not something we simply speak about; it’s something we live on a daily basis. Although Southwestern is the most racially diverse law school in California, we realize diversity goes far beyond race and ethnicity.
This program is an opportunity to share with you our rooted and broad commitment to diversity in the legal profession. You will see diversity in our faculty research and the classes we teach. You will see diversity in our programs of study: we have the longest standing 2-year JD program in the country, SCALE, and the only program dedicated to parents with child- and elder-care responsibilities, PLEAS. Diversity runs through our alumni and the various fields of practice they’re enjoying. Lastly, you will see diversity in our student organizations—we believe they are the heart of this school.
Southwestern has been recognized for its diversity, most recently the 2014 State Bar of California Organizational Diversity Award, and was the first law school to receive this honor in the award’s 13-year history. Join us for a day full of programming honoring diversity and the law with informational sessions, campus tours, and lunch with student organization leaders, deans and faculty. All attendees will receive application fee waivers and free parking.
