Inclusive Opportunities in Law

Since the 1960s, the student populations of American law schools have become increasingly diverse. Most law schools have active recruitment programs for students of color, to help ensure greater diversity in their student body and in the legal profession. Many (including SCU) waive application fees, and it is to your advantage to include information on your racial or ethnic identity (even if not requested on the application), as such information helps to present a complete picture of you. Similarly, interesting life experiences and past employment experiences also count. Be sure to let the law schools know if you are interested in their programs for minority applicants. Be aware that law schools will vary in the resources they invest in both attracting and retaining diverse groups of students.
