Since 1968, the Minority Student Program
has been at the core of our commitment to diversity within the law school and the profession at large. Among its alumni/ae are members of the U.S. Senate, cabinet secretaries at the national and state levels, judges in the federal and state courts, partners in law firms throughout the country, as well as general counsel and executives in businesses and non-profit organizations nationwide. A post-admissions program, the MSP provides academic support, mentoring, and internships to students who, regardless of race or ethnic origin, can demonstrate through a history of socio-economic, educational, or cultural experiences that they have been disadvantaged. To attract minority and disadvantaged students of high academic and professional promise, we need to establish additional MSP scholarships and programming.
