Office of Community Engagement, Equity, and Belonging



The diverse student body at Harvard Law School is drawn from across the nation and around the world. With a dedication to excellence and lifelong learning, the HLS community cultivates inclusion and equity in an environment of trust and mutual respect. It is the commitment of the Law School to respect the rights, dignity, and differences of others, and to pursue honesty and integrity in engaging with all members of the community.

The Office of Community Engagement, Equity, and Belonging is focused on helping ensure that all students feel connected to the broad HLS community and within smaller environments across our campus. Among other responsibilities, this office develops and provides new programming for historically underrepresented and first-generation students; helps foster ever deeper connections and a felt sense of belonging across a law school community that proudly reflects a broad diversity of backgrounds and lived experiences; builds on the Amicus platform as a tool for creating mentorship connections; and supports leaders of HLS student organizations and journals in achieving their goals. Students are encouraged to visit our office to discuss ways that we can be of assistance.

HLS Talks Student Speaker Series

HLS Talks Student Speaker Series

HLS Talks is a student-led speaker series that provides an open forum for students to share stories and connect with each other as people, not just as law students. By sharing stories and not resumes, HLS Talks has become an integral part of the HLS community. We invite all students to participate as Speakers, Listeners, and Coaches.

To learn more about HLS Talks, please email HLS Talks Co-Chairs Sarah Sadlier and Faith Jackson at
