Other Information

Each year we host a diversity panel where students with diverse backgrounds talk about their experiences in law school. That panel always includes at least one person with a disability who speaks about his/her unique experience. Most recently, a sight impaired student spoke about the challenges that he faces as a law student. This panel has been quite enlightening to the entire law school community.
