Diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency are critical to fulfilling our mission as a law school and as part of the legal community.
In May 2007, the Lewis & Clark College Board of Trustees approved a resolution affirming the inherent educational benefits of diversity for the college environment. The Law School shares this value and believes that diversity in the classroom furthers its educational mission.
As a professional school preparing the next generation of our nation’s lawyers, we believe that our promise to support diversity is both an academic and professional duty.
Increasing the diversity of the legal profession and developing the cultural competency of our students is part of the Law School’s commitment to promoting equal access to justice and training the best professionals in all fields of legal practice.
This website is a resource for students, staff, faculty, and prospective students to learn about the diversity of experience and background on our campus and to access relevant resources, events and policies.
