A Legacy of Diversity & Opportunity

Diversity and opportunity have been guiding ideals at The John Marshall Law School for more than 115 years. Our commitment to recruiting and supporting minority and otherwise under-represented students is rooted in the belief that, for lawyers to truly benefit society, the legal profession must embody a community that celebrates its own multiplicity while remaining dedicated to the pursuit of justice and upholding the rule of law for all people everywhere. We view our diversity as one of the hallmarks for measuring our success.

Our Commitment to Diversity

The John Marshall Law School, finding any invidious discrimination inconsistent with the mission of free academic inquiry, does not discriminate in admission, services, or employment on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic characteristics, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
