The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University has received a national diversity award from the Law School Admission Council.
The Diversity Matters Award was awarded for the law school’s commitment to diversity and for demonstrating that commitment through programs for underrepresented students in high school and college.
The umbrella for the College of Law’s diversity programs is the Hispanic National Bar Association’s (HNBA) Mentoring Program. It assigns K-12 students to mentoring teams comprising attorneys, law students, college students and high school students. Although the HNBA program serves many students of color, it is open to those of all ethnicities.
