Shipman & Goodwin Sponsors Law School Diversity Week

March 14, 2013

SBA Diversity Committee 2013 Diversity Week

The importance of diversity took center stage at Diversity Week 2013, a celebration by the University of Connecticut School of Law Student Bar Association Diversity Committee and sponsored by Shipman & Goodwin. To highlight diversity initiatives at UConn Law and in the Connecticut legal community, this year’s events explored diversity of ethnicity, gender, politics, disability status and religion. Presenters included leaders and advocates in the legal community, area law school professors and guest lecturers. Among the many events was a discussion entitled Unequal Under the Law: A Discussion About DOMA; this panel on the Defense of Marriage Act was particularly timely given that oral arguments began in the U.S. Supreme Court in late March on the constitutionality of Prop 8 and the constitutionality of Section 3 of DOMA in U.S. v. Windsor.

Diversity Week 2013 took place from March 18 through March 22 at the UConn Law School campus in Hartford.
