Class Profile

Each year, USF seeks to admit a diverse group of students who are among the most capable law students in the nation.

Diversity is a core value of the law school, and, consistent with our mission, we aim to admit students from diverse backgrounds, including men and women of differing races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and ages as well as individuals with disabilities. Diversity enables students to learn from one another, promotes a variety of perspectives, and enhances empathy and critical engagement.
