Temple University Beasley School of Law’s commitment to diversity is reflected in its mission statement, which reads in part:
Temple Law Review affirms the law school’s commitment to diversity and seeks to further this commitment by promoting diversity in both its membership and scholarship. Temple Law Review is a voice of Temple Law School to the greater legal community. As such, this voice should reflect the rich diversity of experiences and perspectives in our community. A chorus of voices heightens legal discourse, promotes soundness of critical thought, and encourages thorough consideration of unique ideas. Therefore, Temple Law Review welcomes and actively encourages students with diverse identities and backgrounds to join.
The Temple Law Review recognizes that inequalities and discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, and other identities persist both in the legal profession and in institutions of legal education. Temple Law Review is aware of the power it has to influence legal discourse and acknowledges the impact that choosing which voices to center has on challenging inequality or contributing to it. Thus, Temple Law Review seeks to encourage and amplify diverse voices in order to achieve the law school’s goals of “excellence in higher education and equal justice under the law.”
