Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

Main Content

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee was formed under the direction of Dean Kerry Abrams to advise, support, and supplement the diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives of the Law School.

In the summer of 2020, the DEI Committee formed a working group of students, faculty, staff and alumni to develop a Preliminary Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in coordination with Dean Abrams and her senior administration. This plan was shared with the Law School community in September 2020 and provided the framework with which the DEI Committee directed its work beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year. Below is the membership of the committee for 2022-23.
