Honoring the contributions of Latinx students, staff and faculty

Oct 19, 2022

Marking the conclusion of Latinx Heritage Month, Vanderbilt Law School honors the extraordinarily impactful contributions of our Latinx students, staff and faculty. This legacy is one of which we are rightfully deeply proud, reflecting pathways of excellence, community-building and teaching throughout legal practice and service.

We are committed to ensuring that, as a Law School, we celebrate the rich history of Latinx communities through action, by learning and by supporting efforts to ensure that the legal system is structured to address community needs equitably, fairly and justly. In this way, we wish to underscore Latinx heritage and belonging at VLS as a part of our everyday values that are lived and experienced in every month and on every day of the year by all members throughout our community.
