Villanova Law strives to educate our students on issues that our nation and practicing attorneys face. 

Recently, the Law School has significantly expanded and enhanced course offerings in the areas of race, law and social justice, including within the numerous legal clinics and Professional Development program. Existing courses have also been reexamined to cover these issues. Just as the conversations on diversity, equity and inclusion continue, Villanova Law will review and reassess our curriculum in consultation with students, affinity groups and experts in their fields.
