Commitment to Diversity

The University of Mississippi School of Law is committed to providing an educational environment that reflects the broader society and its varied perspectives, people and principles. The Law School strives to promote diversity among its faculty, staff and student body through its academic and extracurricular programming, which is reflective of the Law School and University’s overall philosophy found in its Creed.

The University of Mississippi School of Law supports the University’s commitment to inclusion, diversity, and academic freedom. The Law School shares a deep commitment to these values as part of the University community, welcoming persons regardless of race, color, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, national origin, age disability, veteran status, or genetic information. (The University’s nondiscrimination policy can be found here.)

We work diligently to foster a community of inclusion, an atmosphere of open, reflective, and respectful debate, and a home where all feel welcomed.
