USF Ranked Top Law School for Hispanics
September 13, 2010
The University of San Francisco School of Law is one of the top 10 law schools for Hispanics in 2010, according to Hispanic Business magazine. USF, which ranked as the ninth best law school for Hispanics, is one of the most diverse in the nation with approximately 41 percent students of color in the 2010 entering class.
The magazine assesses the nation’s top universities annually to determine which schools are at the forefront of attracting Hispanic students and providing academic support to ensure they succeed. To create the rankings, Hispanic Business evaluates enrollment, number of Hispanic faculty, and law school 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. We are particularly proud of this accolade as it is tangible evidence of our steadfast commitment to diversity and particularly for underrepresented minorities,” Dean Jeffrey Brand said. “This honor reflects our unswerving belief that academic excellence and a great legal education are fueled by diversity.”
