Several student organizations at Tulane Law School have joined together to celebrate the month of March as the school's first Diversity Month. This unique series of events is designed to foster dialogue among the student body through educational programs and events that promote respect for different races, genders, religions, classes and sexual orientations. Events, including "town hall" discussions, lectures and social events, will be held throughout the month of March. The Diversity Month observance will culminate on April 4, 2004, which has been selected by the American Bar Association's Law Student Division as Diversity Day, to be observed at law schools nationwide. April 4, the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, was chosen as a tribute to the memory of the late Dr. King.
Sponsoring law school organizations are: American Constitution Society, Asian-Pacific-American Law Students Association, Black Law Students Association, Christian Law Society, Federalist Society, La Alianza del Derecho, Lambda Law Alliance, and Law Women's Association.
