Equity & Diversity
The University of Minnesota Law School is committed to fostering a legal system and a legal community that reflect the diversity of the broader society and embrace its varied perspectives. In addition to promoting diversity among its faculty and student body, the Law School strives to nurture a thoughtful and thought-provoking academic and extracurricular experience.
By incorporating casework that addresses cultural, socioeconomic, and other diversity issues and by offering opportunities for open dialogue among the legal community, the Law School celebrates diversity and its important role in the legal structure and society. Diversity in viewpoint, experience, and background ensures the best possible service to clients of all cultures and ideologies; increases access to the courts and government; and enhances justice.
The Law School also offers a summer Minnesota Pre-Law Scholars Program that assists under-served and diverse students to prepare for the law school admissions process and the LSAT exams.
