SLS alumni in support of the ‘Racism Lives Here, Too’ campaign


More than 400 Stanford Law School alumni, spanning over 30 years of SLS graduates, have signed onto the letter below supporting the student-led “Racism Lives Here, Too” campaign. The many alumni signatories represent some of the law school’s most active and involved alumni. Our hope in publishing this letter is to show the student organizers that we support them and their movement, and to demonstrate to the administration and faculty that there exists broad and deep interest among alumni in prioritizing diversity and inclusion at SLS.   — A Coalition of Alumni Supporting RLHT

Dear Dean Magill and Stanford Law School Community:

We are a group of Stanford Law School alumni writing to pledge our full support for the coalition of students of color seeking racial equity at SLS. We have watched from afar as the students have engaged in a brave, sharp and thoughtful campaign for fairness and respect. Their honest airing of biased and racist behavior at the Law School inspired us to reflect on our own experiences at Stanford and as lawyers. We join the voices of these students to call out racism and implicit bias and to amplify our desire to see a change in how the legal profession as a whole approaches these issues.

Stanford Law School is a community of individuals of different races, cultures, religions, class locations, political viewpoints and nationalities. We understand that our diversity is our strength. We know that students of color are denied the same highest-quality legal training received by their white classmates when they must contend on a daily basis with the painful effects of racism and unconscious bias. We also know that when our legal academic institutions do not support young law students of color, the repercussions extend beyond the individual. Every time a law student of color is diminished, ignored or targeted on account of her race, the legal profession risks losing her contributions, her talent and her passion. And the project of creating a legal workforce that is representative of the people it serves is set back.

In our experience at Stanford, frank discussions of race in the classroom were rare. Those discussions that did occur were often initiated by faculty of color, of whom there were far too few. No orientation session pertained to racial sensitivity or cultural inclusion. The observation of the coalition of students of color that you could graduate from Stanford despite having “completely avoid[ed] discussions of race and structural inequalities” was equally accurate in our own time. [1] This represents a disservice not only to students of color, but to all students, who should be prepared to work competently with clients, supervisors, colleagues and judges from backgrounds other than their own. It is the law school’s obligation to train all of its students in this regard. We worry that in the absence of a robust response and serious commitment to change, this issue could impact SLS’s ability to attract students of color, as well as any student who understands the importance of being trained to be a culturally competent member of the legal profession.

As an institution driven by new ideas and innovation with access to the world’s leading scholars on implicit bias and institutional change, SLS is perfectly positioned to serve as a model for best practices in recruitment, orientation, teaching, training and student support designed to promote racial equity. An important measure of success in such efforts should be whether students of color report that they believe they belong at SLS and are a valued part of our community. By that measure, we are currently failing.

We urge Dean Magill, the SLS administration and the entire faculty, to listen to students of color who are speaking out, and to seek input from those who are not so vocal. We expect you to support the leadership of the coalition of law students of color as well as those faculty and staff at the law school who have been working closely with the coalition. Accepting their leadership does not relieve you of the responsibility of addressing this problem. Rather, it means letting them set your course, executing their vision and expanding upon it and checking in with the students of color and their trusted advisers at every step.

We have been heartened to see the letters of support published in the Stanford Daily from SLS faculty of color and SLS ethics faculty, as well as the statement of support from the SLS faculty. [2] [3] We welcome the SLS faculty’s statement inviting individual students to speak with them about their concerns, and we also urge faculty to learn how they can initiate  conversations about race and inclusivity themselves, in their own classrooms. We remind our faculty that it can be incredibly difficult for students of color to approach them directly to air concerns, given the immense power they wield over the fate of their students. While we are hopeful that discussing and listening will lead to better understanding, we believe that understanding the problem is only the first step. Lasting change will come only if the Law School identifies specific policy solutions that will allow the institution to challenge and respond to bias. We expect that the Law School will thoughtfully implement tangible changes, measure the results, and adjust as needed in the long-term. The new Working Group on Diversity & Inclusion is a promising step in the right direction. However, the relatively small number of Working Group spots allocated to students is a concern.

As alumni of an institution that we steadfastly admire and credit with launching our careers, we pledge to hold the administration accountable to its students of color and to its professed ideals. While we are no longer physically present on campus, we are invested in Stanford’s relationships to its students of color and to the education that it provides to all of its students.

With every challenge comes opportunity. We believe SLS can distinguish itself by making a concerted, systemic, and lasting effort to interrupt the harmful impacts caused by overt racism and implicit bias on students of color in our community. By so doing, the law school will provide individual students of color the opportunity they deserve to pursue their legal education on equal footing with their classmates, and will lead the way in the creation of a more just legal profession.
