USF Ranked in Top 10 Law Schools for Hispanics

September 09, 2009

Hispanic Business magazine recognized the University of San Francisco School of Law as one of the top 10 law schools for Hispanics in 2009.

The USF School of Law, which ranked as the sixth best law school for Hispanics, is one of the most diverse law schools in the nation with approximately 36 percent students of color in the 2009 entering class.

The magazine assesses the nation's top universities annually to determine which schools are at the forefront of recruiting, training, retaining, and offering quality higher education. To create the rankings, HispanTelligence, the research arm of Hispanic Business Inc., evaluated enrollment, number of Hispanic faculty, retention rate, reputation, and student services, such as programs to recruit Hispanic students, mentorship programs, and student support organizations.

"The law school is proud of its unswerving commitment to diversity and its firm conviction that a diverse law school is a critical to achieving excellence in the education we provide," Dean Jeffrey Brand said. "Our placing in the top 10 in the latest Hispanic Business magazine survey demonstrates that we understand this principle and that we are fulfilling our commitment to diversity in which we believe so deeply."
