Law School Initiatives

Colorado Law is committed to inclusion and diversity, and we are proud to support efforts that further this important goal within our school.

  • Student organizations: Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA); Black Law Students Association (BLSA); Latino Law Students Association (LLSA); Native American Law Students Association (NALSA); OUTLaw, the GLBT & Allies Law Student Group; and Women’s Law Caucus (WLC). 
  • Committee for Inclusiveness and Diversity: The Committee for Inclusiveness and Diversity is a student-lead organization with which several deans and faculty members actively engage in an advisory role. Four principles, known as pillars, guide the Committee's work: (1) Support: providing diverse students with the resources necessary to succeed both academically and socially; (2) Recruitment and Retention: increasing the recruitment and retention of diverse students, faculty, and staff; (3) Education: providing students, faculty, and staff with information and training on diversity-related issues; and (4) Policy Change: evaluating, and suggesting methods to improve, the law school climate. If you would like more information on the Committee for Inclusiveness and Diversity, please contact Chair Courtney Cole at courtney.cole@colorado.edu.
  • Inclusive Excellence Leadership Series: In cooperation with the Center for Legal Inclusiveness (CLI), we provide a year-long Inclusive Excellence Leadership Series for students, faculty and staff.  The programs give students the opportuntity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for becoming more culturally competent lawyers in today's society by exploring meaningful topics such as generational diversity, implicit bias, work-life balance, micro-inequities, and the dynamics of privilege in law and society. Students who attend four or more sessions receive a certificate from CLI which is recognized by major Denver legal employers and the judiciary.
