The students who formed this group are not representative of all URMs who attend W&L law. I am in no way disregarding or condemning their feelings or actions. In fact, there are many URM and non-URM law students that agree with some or all of their points. But not all W&L URM support the method behind this movement.
Please read this article with discernment and definitely reach out to any URMs on here if you have more questions. Please do not get the idea that W&L is rife with racism at every single corner. Know that as a URM, there will always be fewer of us no matter where you go (unless you go to Howard or a school with similar makeup). This is the reality of the legal market, those applying to law school and honestly, the professional world. To isolate W&L as the only school where you will realize that you are a minority would be unjust. You will realize it whether you go to Harvard or Thomas Cooley, whether you are on the east or west coast of this country, you will be aware of it whether your class size is 10 or 450.
Law school will be uncomfortable no matter where you go as a URM. You will remember what you are a URM many times but you should also not let that control you. Do not let this stop you from getting a good legal education at a good school.
