Nondiscrimination and Diversity

The College of Law subscribes to Standard 210 of the American Bar Association for the Approval of Law Schools and maintains equality of opportunity in legal education without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or sexual orientation. The College of Law also subscribes to Standard 211 and recognizes a commitment to providing full opportunities for the study of law and entry into the profession by qualified members of groups (notably racial and ethnic minorities) that have been victims of discrimination in various forms. The College of Law has a special concern for determining the potential of such applicants through the admissions process and recruiting such persons as applicants and seeking to meet their special financial needs.

In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction.  Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction.  Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
