Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Events, Forums and Competitions
Chicago-Kent students are offered a variety of diversity-related social events, forums and lectures, community dialogs, and even an annual writing competition. And for graduates we offer a special multicultural celebration to mark the achievements of diverse students at Chicago-Kent.
Even at the high school level, we are constantly reaching out to underrepresented students to teach them about the law and to encourage interest in a potential legal career. And for undergraduate students, we continue to run the oldest Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) program in the country, paving the way for underrepresented students to explore careers in the law.
Our Career Services Office promotes diversity-related job fairs, scholarship opportunities, summer associate positions, networking receptions, workshops, seminars, and other programs throughout the year. Every year we support career-building initiatives through partnerships with local law firms and other organizations. Additionally, our Office of Student Affairs manages accommodations based on disability and religion.
“Chicago-Kent College of Law provides equality of opportunity in legal education for all persons, including applicants for admission, enrolled students, and graduates, without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, handicap or disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”
