Black Lives Matter & Antiracism
Recognizing the existence and trauma of racism, its particularly damaging impact on Black lives, and the varying ways it explicitly and implicitly dehumanizes people of color, we share these resources as part of a broader discourse and effort to be antiracist.

Loyola Law School and Loyola Marymount University are committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity. In addition to adhering to a policy of non-discrimination we seek progress toward a community that is authentically anti-racist, that condemns all forms of bigotry, that reflects the diverse world in which we live, that respects and values each community member, and that ensures equal access for all.
Diversity and inclusion are integral in all aspects of the Law School. Below are some of the initiatives and programs the Office of Student Affairs and Office of Student Services help to coordinate in collaboration with other departments, faculty, staff, and students.
Loyola Law School celebrates and highlights the importance of diversity through a weeklong series of programs. Diversity Week at Loyola Law School is typically held in the Spring semester. Diversity Week 2023 will be from January 30 - February 3. Please contact Associate Director of Student Services and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Alejandra Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org to co-sponsor and include your event in the DEI communication.
Generation One (GO)
Generation One (GO) is a support network for matriculating Loyola Law School Juris Doctor and Master in Legal Studies students who are the first in their families to attend college and/or law school. The program is part of the Law School's commitment to address the gap in access to justice and to encourage the success of students from underrepresented communities. In addition to having a Loyola Law School alum mentor, students will receive invitations to attend special panels where they can hear and learn from others about how to navigate law school and prepare for a legal profession.
