The scholarship repository's "Equity & Inclusion at William & Mary Law School" collection seeks to highlight and preserve the history of overlooked members of the law school community.

This sub-collection is dedicated to documenting the thoughts and experiences of our community in 2020-2021, at a time when both our school and our country are reckoning with the persistence of racial injustice. As part of this effort, we are seeking submissions from current students, faculty, and staff that reflect upon issues relating to racial and social justice. We hope this collection will represent the diverse voices of the law school today.

We will accept both submissions created specifically for this project and submissions of previously written material, but it must be submitted by the creator. Submissions are moderated for appropriateness but will not be edited. All accepted submissions will be housed permanently in the repository and made publicly available.

To share your experience, please submit your written contribution using the "Submit Research" or "Submit by Email" links in the sidebar. We have provided some questions and prompts that may be helpful in composing your submission, but you may include any written response that you feel is meaningful to record and preserve.

  • Please tell us a little about yourself.

  • How have your experiences in 2020 and 2021 shaped your understanding of justice? Of equity?
  • How have your experiences as a member of the law school community shaped your understanding of justice? Of equity?
  • What is your vision of the future?
  • Are you optimistic about the progress of social justice in America? Why or why not?
