Previous keynote speakers include attorney Julius Chambers, founder of the UNC Center for Civil Rights; Elaine Jones, former director-counsel and president, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Funds; Timothy Tyson, noted author and historian; Julianne Malveaux, president of Bennett College for Women; and James R. Spencer, U.S. District Court judge.
Diversity Day will take place at the Elon University School of Law, located at 201 N. Greene St. in downtown Greensboro. The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Diversity Day is sponsored in part by the Law School Admission Council as a part of Discoverlaw.org Month. There is no cost to attend.
