Hispanic Business MagazineFor the third year in a row, Hispanic Business magazine has named the UNM School of Law the top law school in the country for Hispanic students.

At the law school, Hispanics make up nearly one-third of the student body, Hispanic professors make up 26 percent of the faculty and 19 percent of the graduates are Hispanic. Such diversity led to the top ranking.

"UNM School of Law works to create a diverse student population by recruiting in New Mexico and surrounding states to let prospective students know what it is like to be part of the law school community and the legal profession," the magazine reports.
