Diversity at Duke Law is more than a statement or a goal: it is part of our educational mission. Duke Law values diversity, in the broadest sense, because the law is a field and profession that must serve and protect all members of society. The educational experience of our students is demonstrably enriched by an exchange of ideas and experiences among students, faculty, staff, and alumni who contribute diverse perspectives. The age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, cultural backgrounds, educational experience, political perspectives, work experience, and physical ability or disability of each member of our community offer opportunities for us to deepen our understanding of our society and our roles as lawyers, leaders, and public servants.
