The University of Baltimore School of Law provides a gateway to the legal profession for people of all backgrounds. The law school welcomes applicants without regard to race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion or political belief. The Diversity Law Forum will give participants the chance to learn about what the University of Baltimore offers students from diverse backgrounds.
Professor Tylis Cooper will present Poverty, power, and policy: From Sarah Baartman to Linda Taylor – How welfare policy is intimately tethered to racialized tropes about poor African American mothers.
Student representatives from the Black Law Students Association, the Latin American Law Students Association, The Asian Pacific American Law Students Association and The Queer Equity Council will share the reasons they applied to law school and why they chose UB. They will also discuss the importance of diversity in the classroom and in the profession.
Mark Bell, director of diversity initiatives and recruitment at the School of Law, will present “Building a Better Applicant,” a session on the basics of applying to law school.
