Some interesting facts about Howard Law School

Howard is a national law school that embraces diversity and inclusiveness. Howard Law holds the distinction of graduating more African American attorneys than any other law school in the nation. And while we embrace and are poised to remain the flagship in producing attorneys of color, we seek to share the educational experience and richness that this institution offers with ethnically and culturally diverse individuals. Our approximately 500 students are comprised of people from all walks of life, varied socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientation, and gender identities. We have students from almost every US state and many foreign nations. We have third-generation law students and those that will be the first in their families to hold a jurist doctorate. We hope to learn from the experiences of each and every member of the Howard family so our graduates can better foster positive change in society.
