Volume 1: Five Tactics for Increasing Racial, Ethnic, and Socioeconomic Diversity
This is the first volume of a multi-part series of guides focused on providing meaningful and actionable tactics for increasing law student diversity. The purpose of this document is to provide law schools with strategies that can serve as a roadmap for increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of their student bodies — effectively changing the face of the legal profession.
Volume 2: Developing a Diversity Plan
Practically every law school professes a commitment to diversity. Yet, many law schools struggle to enroll diverse classes, often despite tangible efforts. Diversity is necessary and possible; but achieving it is not always easy. Enrolling classes that live up to the lofty pronouncements often made about diversity requires a plan of action centered on clear goals, tangible objectives and measurable outcomes. The purpose of this second volume of the Roadmap to Enrolling Diverse Law School Classes series is to provide law schools with tactics for engaging in strategic planning around student diversity.
Volume 3: Assessing Recruitment Efforts
Law schools expend extensive resources on initiatives aimed at engaging prospective students from underrepresented backgrounds. Still, many law schools struggle to admit and matriculate critical masses of underrepresented students. Efforts are vital, but they must be tied to results. Assessing the impact of efforts to increase diversity is critical to achieving diversity goals and to ensuring that resources are expended efficiently.
