TALLAHASSEE — 
HispanicBusiness has named Florida State University College of Law the nation’s #2 law school for Hispanic students.  This is the 11th year in a row that HispanicBusiness has rated FSU in the top 10 and represents the school’s highest rating to date. The 2014 rankings were released August 20.

HispanicBusiness based its rankings on Hispanic student enrollment, Hispanic faculty members, Hispanic student retention rates, special programs aimed at increasing enrollment of and at supporting Hispanic students, and school reputation as reflected in U.S. News & World Report.

“We are all thrilled to once again be named in the HispanicBusiness top 10,” said Dean Donald J. Weidner. “Our community as a whole is enriched by the Hispanic and Latino dimensions of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.”

The HispanicBusiness ranking follows the U.S. News & World Report ranking earlier this year, which rated Florida State #1 in Florida and #45 nationally.
