The Law School is committed to enrolling the strongest and most diverse class possible -- diverse in every way, with respect to life and work experiences, interests, skills, and backgrounds. And as you may know, we are one of the most racially and ethnically diverse law schools in the country. Each year our current students, faculty and alums from across the country gather for the Legal Educational Opportunities (LEO) Banquet as we celebrate our successes and reaffirm our commitment to maintaining one of the most interesting and dynamic learning environments in the country.

The LEO Program was established in 1967 to address issues of diversity within the student body. The support of the LEO Community as a whole has been instrumental in our continued ability to enroll diverse incoming classes. A testament to the efforts of current students, alums, faculty and staff is the fact that we maintain an average of over 20% students of color in the student body year after year.
