Georgetown Law is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that enriches every student’s educational experience and prepares them to become leaders in the legal profession and our global society.
At Georgetown Law, we strive to live by the Jesuit concept of cura personalis – the care of the whole person. Our mission is to create a community where the many different and unique talents, abilities, and dreams of all our members are valued and can flourish. In turn, we can enable every person at Georgetown Law to make important contributions to our community – and to the law.
Georgetown is at its strongest when we seek out and welcome students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and walks of life, especially aspiring lawyers, administrators, and educators who come from communities that are historically underrepresented in the legal profession.
While we are proud of the progress Georgetown Law has made over the years, we recognize there is still so much work ahead of us. Our goals will require consistent effort, respect for differences of opinion and free and open debate, and generosity of spirit. And we will keep working until Georgetown Law becomes a model for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in legal education.
