Be Yourself, With Pride

We Are Proud to be an LGBTQIA-Friendly School

With roughly 200 law schools in the country that each have different offerings, perspectives and distinct cultures, it’s important for all students to find the right “fit” at a law school that is both welcoming and supportive. Members of the LGBTQIA community have all likely experienced being somewhere they didn’t belong or felt they couldn’t be themselves. It doesn’t have to be that way.
