The USF School of Law is among the top 10 law schools for Hispanics in 2010.
The University of San Francisco School of Law has been
ranked one of the top 10 law schools for Hispanics in 2010, according to
Hispanic Business magazine.
The law school, which ranked as the ninth best law school
for Hispanics nationwide, is among the most diverse in the country with
approximately 41 percent of students of color comprising the 2010 entering
class. Hispanic Business magazine’s rankings assess the nation’s top
universities annually to determine which schools are at the forefront of
attracting Hispanic students and providing the academic support to ensure they
succeed. To create the rankings, the magazine evaluates enrollment, the number
of Hispanic faculty, and the law school’s programs.
“For the second year in a row, USF ranks among the top 10
schools in terms of creating a welcoming environment for Hispanic students,”
said Jeffrey Brand, law school dean. “We are particularly proud of this
accolade as it is tangible evidence of our steadfast commitment to diversity
and particularly for underrepresented minorities.”
