UNM School of Law Ranked Fifth in Nation by HispanicBusiness

StudentsIn what has become tradition, Hispanic Business Magazine ranked the University of New Mexico School of Law the fifth-best law school for Hispanics in the nation. Each year the magazine mea­sures the effectiveness of the nation’s universities in attracting Hispanic stu­dents, and providing them with the academic support they need to be successful. The school was also ranked fifth last year.

The ranking was based on the number of Hispanic students enrolled, Hispanic faculty members, degrees conferred to Hispanics and progressive programs aimed at securing enrollment of Hispanic students.

The top four schools in the ranking were, the University of Texas at Austin (1), Florida International University (2), Florida State University (3) and American University’s Washington College of Law (4). Rounding out the top 10 were, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (6), University of California at Los Angeles (7), Gould School of Law at University of Southern California (8), University of Miami (9) and University of San Franicisco (10).
