Our students are highly diverse in background and experience, adding unique and expansive dimensions to our community’s social and intellectual life. They are engaged global citizens, bold and inquisitive thinkers, and relentlessly supportive peers—and they are dedicated to making an impact as leaders in the law and civic life.
