How Suffolk University is responding
to the coronavirus outbreak
Suffolk Law was recognized at the 15th-anniversary celebration of the Annual National Black Pre-Law Conference & Law Fair with that organization’s “Outstanding Law School Diversity Outreach Award.”
The school’s admissions outreach and focus on diversity pipeline programs contributed to the honor. One example of the pipeline in action is recent graduate Sam Faisal JD’20. As a public high school student in Boston, Faisal wasn’t thinking of becoming an attorney until he began receiving lessons in constitutional law from two Suffolk Law students. His mentors were serving as Marshall Brennan fellows, teaching subjects like free speech in the high school context, search and seizure law, and civil rights in police encounters.
