Our Faculty

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Lifetime relationships begin at our annual LAHANAS DEI retreat. Incoming LAHANAS students mingle with current students, faculty, staff and alumni, who welcome them to the BC Law community. There's nothing more moving than attending an affinity group event and seeing members of all student affinity groups present, supporting one another, as we celebrate who we are.
Lisa Brathwaite, Director, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Programs
