The University of Arkansas School of Law seeks out prospective students who self-identify as LGBTQ+ by participating in national and regional recruitment events, conducting targeted email campaigns, connecting with LGBTQ+ student organizations on campus, and utilizing LSAC tools such as the candidate referral service and law school forums. We also connect prospective LGBTQ+ students with current students and faculty members who identify as LGBTQ+. Additionally, the Richard B. Atkinson Law LGBTQ Law & Policy Program supports a variety of activities for allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community, including research, service, teaching, speakers and scholarships designed to educate and affect LGBTQ law and policy.
Students may self-identify in their personal statements and/or optional diversity statement. Applicants may select between binary or non-binary gender identity options on the application. Additionally, applicants may self-identify as LGBTQ+ via LSAC.
