Abstract

In recent years, law schools have struggled to recruit and graduate a more diverse student population, recognizing that greater diversity benefits both the law school community and society at large. Students from non-traditional backgrounds enrich the law school environment by bringing new perspectives into the law school dialogue. They enrich the profession and society by providing lawyers, role models, and leaders to disenfranchised communities and by helping the bench and bar better reflect the populations they serve.
