Commitment to Diversity

Commitment to Diversity

The University of Dayton School of Law is committed to encouraging people of diverse backgrounds and experiences to join our student body. As a Law School Admission Council (LSAC)-member school, we support and participate in LSAC's DiscoverLaw programs.

In 2023, our entering class consisted of approximately 57 percent females and 29 percent ethnic minorities. They came from 31 different states and territories and 1 international country. There are 87 different colleges and 40 majors represented. Approximately 18-20% percent of each incoming class has an advanced degree.

Annually, we award a significant number of Legal Opportunity Scholarships for our entering and continuing students based on their diverse backgrounds and interests. Students may participate in programs such as the Summer Diversity Clerkship Program and in regional minority career fairs. With support from the faculty, fellow students and the administration, student organizations such as the Black Law Student Association, the Asian and Pacific Islander Law Student Association, the Hispanic Law Student Association, the Christian Association of Leadership and Law and Phi Alpha Delta, to name just a few, support and encourage students of all backgrounds and interests.

Our Nondiscrimination Policy is critical to our mission in emphasizing the educational and social enrichment that diversity brings to the School of Law, the community and the legal profession.
