Diversity at NIU College of Law

Northern Illinois University College of Law is strongly committed to facilitating access to the legal profession for members of traditionally underrepresented groups. Among our goals is to counter the effects of societal discrimination, to increase the number of lawyers who will serve in communities that are currently underserved and to obtain for our students the educational benefits that flow from a diverse faculty and student body. We therefore recruit faculty and students who represent diverse communities and identities in our society based on gender, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, race, culture, ethnicity and physical ability.


DiscoverLaw.org is a web campaign developed by The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for racially and ethnically diverse students to discover career opportunities in law and choose a path in undergraduate school to help them succeed.
