Students in suits celebrating after a moot court competition

Suffolk Law School has several programs to encourage students from traditionally underrepresented communities to learn and consider attending law school. We believe that Suffolk Law School's education and student body (and ultimately the legal profession) will be enriched by attracting students who have diverse personal and professional backgrounds. 

Pipeline programs aim to attract students that are diverse across race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity into law school and the legal profession.

Suffolk Law has two successful pipeline programs that helped make the 2012 incoming class the most diverse in Suffolk history:

  • The Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project pairs Boston-area high school students with Suffolk Law students who teach constitutional law and coach the younger students in an annual moot court competition.
  • SU + PLUS is a one-month pre-law program held at Suffolk University each summer for freshman and sophomore students from diverse backgrounds to inspire them to purse legal careers.
