Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is evident in our student and faculty leadership.
Convened by Dean Michael A. Simons, the Dean’s Advisory Council is a diverse group of about 20 students who are leaders and advocates in the St. John’s Law and greater communities. Dean Simons meets with the Council each semester to discuss diversity and inclusion at the Law School. Sharing their diverse perspectives, the students partner meaningfully with the administration in creating an inclusive and accepting Law School environment.
The Law School’s Faculty Diversity Committee brings faculty and administrators—including the Director of Diversity and Inclusion—together with Dean Michael A. Simons to discuss and take action on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, programs, and activities at, or sponsored by, St. John’s Law.
