DePaul University derives its title and
fundamental mission from St. Vincent de Paul, who advocated the
acceptance of all people and devoted his life to helping the
disadvantaged lead dignified lives.
At the College of Law, we seek
diversity in students' special talents, qualities, interests, and
socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Having students with different
interests, goals, life experiences and backgrounds is critical in order
to ensure the robust exchange of ideas that is called for in training
lawyers and potential leaders. Toward this end, we seek a student body
that exhibits outstanding academic and professional promise with varied
backgrounds and experience.
DePaul University College of Law also is committed to improving the
legal community by educating students who will serve the public and
legal profession in ways that enhance the social, economic, cultural and
ethical values in the broader community.
