Our Commitment to Diversity

Elon students in front of law schoolThe decision to attend law school is one of the most important you will make. There is much to consider, from the characteristics of a law school’s program of study to your own personal educational goals and dreams. Among the most important of these considerations is the depth of diversity within a law school community and the breadth of support for diverse people and perspectives within that community.

At Elon Law we believe an outstanding legal education requires engagement with a broad range of people and perspectives. A diverse and academically talented student body and a roster of professors with wide-ranging views and experiences are essential to prepare students to practice law in the 21st century. Through open dialogue and respectful debate in a diverse community, Elon Law students develop the range of insight required to act knowledgeably in today’s global environment.

At Elon Law you will find a supportive community, where minority and international students are embraced, empowered, and motivated to excel in the classroom and beyond. Numerous student organizations provide outlets for minority students to share their values and experiences, while our external opportunities, through clinics and field placement programs, allow students a broad range of experiences, addressing a range of needs in our region and beyond.

At Elon Law we embrace diversity and celebrate the school’s wide range of backgrounds and cultures. We pride ourselves in being able to provide students with an academic community reflective of the communities within which we work and live.
