The Law School thrives on its passion for ideas, the belief that ideas matter and are worth discussing, and that our environment succeeds only when our community includes and welcomes people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Fostering an environment that unambiguously values diversity in all its dimensions-including racial, gender, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation/identity, cultural, lifestyle and viewpoint - is an essential element to our success.
Earl B. Dickerson Centennial Student Research Opportunities
This year, the law school is commemorating the life of our first African-American JD graduate. As part of our celebration of the centennial of Earl B. Dickerson’s graduation, Professors Fairley, Hubbard, and McAdams have identified possible student research projects related to his life and work. We invite students to pursue these or any other projects that you might develop to study law or history that relates to the life and work of Earl Dickerson.
