Commitment to Diversity

Students gathered around a tableThe 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.

Last year, our entering class consisted of approximately 59 percent females and 28 percent ethnic minorities. Their ages range from 20 to 54, and they came from 18 different states and 2 different countries. There are 58 different colleges and 38 majors represented. Approximately 8-10% 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 Minority Summer Judicial Clerkship Program, Minority Summer Externship 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 Environmental Law Society, the Christian Legal Society 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.
