Diversity and the Akron Law PLUS Program
Akron Law promotes diversity in the legal profession through its recruitment and admissions policies, and its community involvement.
One example: Our Akron Law PLUS Program, designed to promote diversity in the legal profession.
The Akron Law PLUS Program offers current undergraduate freshman and sophomores from backgrounds underrepresented in the legal profession the opportunity to experience law school in an innovative and supportive environment. The four-week immersion program is made possible by a grant from the Law School Admissions Council.
The 2020 program has been canceled because of the pandemic. We expect to offer the program in 2021.
