Advancing Diversity & Inclusion at Richmond Law

At the University of Richmond School of Law, we strive to cultivate and model a community marked by inclusivity and concern for others and the greater good. Creating a diverse learning environment in which our students can thrive is a top priority – not only because it makes for a better educational experience, but because it makes for better lawyers. We want to prepare our students to become the kind of lawyers who can navigate a multicultural world, and who will value diversity, equity, and inclusivity in their own work.

This site shares some of the actions we’re taking to work toward a more inclusive and diverse law school, as well as resources and programs to help us along the journey.

"Injustices occurring in our world today re-confirm our need to double down on our diversity and inclusion efforts, and to proactively and enthusiastically affirm our commitment to becoming an anti-racist institution."
