Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Honor Every Voice.

At Boston College Law School, we are known for our supportive and inclusive community, where people from all backgrounds are celebrated for their unique perspectives and lived experiences. In this current moment, we’re inspired by our students, faculty, and alumni who are using their voices in pursuit of racial justice—in and out of the courtroom.
