We have a LGBTQ+ job fair every year at the law school. This fair consists of dozens of employers whose expenses we fund to come to the law school and recruit our students.
We seek diversity in admissions and in faculty and staff recruitment. We make this clear in our application. Our University EEO works with us to have the most diverse community possible.

GW Law is committed to supporting diversity and inclusion among all students, faculty and staff. We are proud of the diverse perspectives brought to the community by individuals from around the country and the world. We strive to be a community that acknowledges and celebrates our differences, welcomes challenging dialogues, and provides a space where unique individual and group values are shared and honored. Through our many student groups and committees, GW Law works together to create an atmosphere that accepts all perspectives and champions for increased knowledge and care for one another. As this page develops, it will be a place to find resources on various areas of diversity, and also to communicate the initiatives and accomplishments of GW Law’s diverse community.
If you have more questions about GW Law’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, please contact Dr. Jessica Floyd Alexander, Program Administrator for Wellness, Diversity & Inclusion at 202.994.8320 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a welcome back to school breakfast for all LGBTQ+ students that is led by Dean Morant and Professors Schechter and Schaffner. We have a LGBTQ+ job fair every spring. We also have Lambda Law, our sensational student group, who do much to foster a climate of inclusion in the law school.
Lastly, a few words about Lambda Law: Lambda Law is an organization of students interested in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) legal issues, employment concerns, and the fostering of tolerance and awareness on campus. The organization provides a network for professional and social interaction between GLBT and all students, faculty, and legal professionals, and for the education of the Law School community about issues facing GLBT individuals. Since its foundation in 1989, Lambda Law has become a visible and active force at the Law School. The organization was involved in adding ‘sexual orientation’ to GW’s nondiscrimination policy, developing and implementing programs with the Career Development Office regarding legal job search issues facing GLBT students, and discussing the Law School’s position toward issues concerning military recruiters on campus. Ongoing events include a mentor program with GLBT attorneys in Washington, discussions on current legal issues and developments, attendance at national legal conferences, educational activities for major advocacy events such as National Coming Out Day and Freedom to Marry Day, and social events with the Law School and other local law student groups. All students are welcome and encouraged to join Lambda Law in an effort to increase awareness and acceptance at the Law School.
