Integrating Doctrine & Diversity
RWU Law staff produce a compelling, timely book and speaker series covering specific ways to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into the law school curriculum.
In Fall 2021, RWU Law began co-sponsoring, along with the City University of New York School of Law, an ongoing Integrating Doctrine & Diversity Speaker Series. Each of the three installments to date have drawn hundreds of legal education professionals from across the country.
Based on a 2021 book – Integrating Doctrine and Diversity: Inclusion and Equity in the Law School Classroom, whose co-editors include two RWU Law instructors – the series focuses on practical strategies for putting DEIB goals into action.
“I’ve received so much positive feedback from students, alumni, librarians across the country, and others,” said Nicole Dyszlewski, one of the book’s co-authors and a primary organizer of the speaker programs. “The comment I’ve heard the most is how engaged and thoughtful everyone is.”
