No, the law school has not traditionally provided funding specifically for LGBTQ+ students to participate in LGBTQ+ focused events. However, our LGBTQ+ students regularly have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of diversity- and minority-related career and job fairs, including, but not limited to, the Southeast Minority Job Fair (SEMJF), the Delaware Minority Job Fair, and the Lavender Law Career Fair. Our LGBTQ+ students also have the opportunity to apply for hundreds of diversity-focused summer internships through pipeline programs such as the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s 1L Scholars Program and the Association of Corporate Counsel National Capital Region’s Corporate Scholars Program.
