The School of Law hires Associate Director of Admissions

June 13, 2024

Dominique Lange Dominique Lange joins the School of Law as the Associate Director of Admissions and Pathway Initiatives, a new staff position created to support admissions growth, enhanced recruiting, and broader outreach that includes underserved communities.

Lange relocated from Dallas, Texas and shared these positive statements: “I am delighted to join the School of Law. It is a privilege to become part of such an amazing team and to contribute new ideas to expand pathway initiatives. Previously, I served as the Program Manager and Pre-Law Advisor at UT Dallas, where I guided students on their paths to law school. I’m excited to bring my background and perspective to the UNM Office of Admissions and Financial Aid team and I look forward to developing programs that create opportunities for New Mexicans and individuals from diverse backgrounds.”

The admissions team at the School of Law is dedicated to cultivating a diverse and inclusive student body while ensuring the success of each student. This commitment extends to developing and executing admissions strategies aimed at attracting the best candidates and offering pathway programs that support students from underrepresented or disadvantaged backgrounds.

With a decline in the number of New Mexicans applying to law schools each year, demographic shifts nationwide leading to anticipated decreases in college enrollment, and additional challenges presented by the Supreme Court’s decision regarding the use of race in the admissions process, it is more important than ever to establish pathways to success for every student, irrespective of their background or circumstances. Lange’s pivotal position serves to attract the best and brightest minds, to create early touchpoints and initiatives aimed at enhancing the composition of our legal community, and to assist in removing barriers to law school enrollment.
