Diversity & Inclusion: Suffolk Law

Suffolk University Law School values an inclusive community and supports diversity among our students, faculty, and staff. We believe that our community is enriched by people of different backgrounds and cultures, and we are committed to building a culture of cooperation among diverse groups. 

At Suffolk Law, in every sphere of the institution, you see diversity in action, whether it's Boston, Chelsea, and Cambridge high school students joining our community for a moot court competition; Wampanoag tribe members collaborating with our clinic students; the hundreds of low-income clients to whom our students provide 16,000 hours of pro bono work each year; our unique LGBTQ job fair; or dozens of events, student programs, public gatherings, and academic symposia that address aspects of this issue. 

Diversity and inclusion are at the core of Suffolk's mission, and have been since the inception of Suffolk Law. We seek to provide a place for every student to excel in the classroom and around Boston. 

Suffolk University Law School’s commitment to these important objectives reflects itself in the wide range of courses that address issues of diversity, inclusion, and social justice in an Area of Focus for  Diversity and Social Justice.
