Sep 01, 2009

TALLAHASSEEHispanic Business magazine has named Florida State University College of Law the third best law school in the nation for Hispanics in its September 2009 issue. This is the sixth year in a row that Florida State Law has been named one the top 10 law schools for Hispanic students.

The magazine based its ranking on a variety of factors, including the percentage of full-time Hispanic faculty, services for Hispanic students, Hispanic recruitment efforts and retention rates, the percentage of Hispanic students enrolled, and the school’s reputation as reflected in U.S. News & World Report. Florida State also has a significant network of highly successful Hispanic alumni.

“Although we have fewer Hispanic students than some other schools, a significant presence of Hispanics in the faculty and administration has helped us continue to climb in the Hispanic Business rankings,” said Dean Don Weidner. “We are thrilled that our superb academic reputation and our dedication to the success of students from all backgrounds have earned us the number three spot.”
