Chew and Salinas on Dialogue and Diversity

Given recent headlines, it seems appropriate to talk about diversity and inclusion in law schools. As Professors Alexa Z. Chew (co-author of The Complete Legal Writer) and her colleague at UNC Law Professor O.J. Salinas recently wrote on Professor Jennifer Romig’s Listen Like a Lawyer blog, “Law schools throughout the country continue to face issues related to diversity and inclusion.” Furthermore, they note, “This isn’t news.”

However, Chew and Salinas point out that “what might be news are the details of these [marginalized] students’ individual experiences or the scope of these negative experiences within a student body.”

“Whether you know it or not,” they write, “your school probably does have an inclusion problem.”
