Excellence Through Diversity and Inclusion
The University of Idaho College of Law welcomes law students, staff and faculty from all cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities, lifestyles, opinions, nationalities, philosophies, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, ages, life experiences and identities, and strives to abolish educational inequity. We believe that increasing the diversity of our organization is pivotal in order for us to benefit from the talent and energy of everyone.
Diversity and inclusion are essential components at the UI College of Law and we require legal professionalism from all sectors of our community to provide a respectful learning environment. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is supported by our
- Career Development Office, which expands career opportunities to women and minority students,
- Native American Law program and courses such as Critical Legal Studies, and our focus on the legal status, experiences and rights of diverse populations,
- Pro Bono Program, which requires all students to perform at least 50 hours of law-related public service, assisting the underserved and disadvantaged, and
- Professionalism program, which exposes students to the importance of cultural competency skills and provides training on bias issues in practice.
