Students of Color in J.D. Program
Diversity isn't just a slogan at Georgetown, it is an integral part of our story.
The size of Georgetown Law separates us from other top law schools. With more than 400 students of color and 27 full-time faculty of color, you won’t feel alone.
As the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution in the United States, our commitment to religious and cultural pluralism and inquiry is unparalleled.
Our Student Affairs team has a program called RISE to prepare students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to thrive in law school and beyond.
We also have over 100 students organizations, with almost half representing different diversity and cultural groups on campus.
And we have an entire support team at the law school to help you on your journey. We have an Office of Equity & Inclusion with a full-time Director, a Director of Disability Services, Diversity Careers team, and a dedicated campus ministry team representing over four faith traditions.
