Goals Mission Impact Legacy Future

There is a severe shortage of lawyers trained in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) areas, particularly among persons of color and women. With the challenging issues of personalized medicine, genetically modified crops, and commercialization of traditional knowledge, it is important that socially responsible lawyers enter the practice area. The NCCU School of Law graduates are instilled with a passion for social justice, a viewpoint critical to this emerging area of policy and law.
