The Office of Inclusion and Engagement has compiled this list of resources for members of the Law School community to draw upon during these challenging and unpredictable times. We hope that these resources offer insight and support to anyone who might seek it. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, related to this list of resources or to other issues relating to the Office of Inclusion and Engagement, please feel free to contact us at 

This Resource List is divided into two sections: Supportive Resources and Examining Inequity. The Supportive Resources section includes information about various resources, funds, and programs that might be useful to Law School community members during this time. The Examining Inequity section includes articles that present information and analyses of the COVID-19 pandemic through a social justice lens. These lists are not comprehensive, and we will update them regularly.
