Harvard Law School is committed to fostering a deeply connected community that values fairness, equal opportunity, respect for the rule of law, and free inquiry in an environment of trust and mutual respect.

Harvard University and Harvard Law School do not discriminate against any person on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and gender expression, as well as pregnancy), genetic information, ancestry, religion, caste, creed, veteran status, disability, military service, sexual orientation or political beliefs in admission to, access to, treatment in, or employment in its programs and activities.

Reflecting these important principles, the University adopted new policies and procedures to address discrimination and bullying. These policies apply to all students, faculty, staff, researchers, and other members of the Harvard community across all Schools and units, including Harvard Law School. All employers using the facilities and services of the career services offices must also comply with these policies and procedures. 

The following individuals serve as resources for receiving reports and complaints, directing community members to resources, and providing information on supportive measures: 

  • Sasha Tulgan, Assistant Dean for Equal Opportunity
  • Catherine Claypoole, Dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs
  • Kristi Jobson, Interim Dean for Student Services

Please contact HLS’s local designated resources by emailing

You can find more information on the Non-discrimination and Anti-Bullying policies and support resources on the University’s community conduct website. These new policies stand alongside the existing Harvard University Interim Title IX Sexual Harassment and Interim Other Sexual Misconduct Policies and the Harvard University Disability Grievance Policy and Procedure.

The implementation of these new policies is part of an ongoing commitment to foster an environment in which everyone can participate fully in the life of the University and Harvard Law School.
