SULC in three Top 10 lists in Princeton Review's latest 'The Best 169 Law Schools' - 10/16/2013 -

SULC is one of the nation's most outstanding law schools and is ranked #1 in most faculty diversity, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review, which features SULC in the new 2014 edition of its book, The Best 169 Law Schools.

Also SULC has been named a Best Bargain Law School for Black Students in the second edition of the Black Student's Guide to Law Schools 2014.

The Princeton Review does not rank the law schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 169, or name one law school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 law schools in various categories, such as "Most Diverse Faculty," in which SULC gets the top ranking for the third year in a row; "Best Environment for Minority Students," in which SULC ranks # 2 up from the #3 spot last year; and "Most Chosen By Older Students," in which SULC ranks #3. SULC ranked #2 in "Most Chosen by Older Students," last year.

SULC is one of 63 schools (about 37 percent of the 169 profiled) in the book that appear on one or more of the book's ranking lists. The lists in the book are posted at

The top 10 lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review's surveys of 18,000 students attending the 168 law schools profiled in the book.

Published by Lawyers of Color, the second edition of Black Students’Guide to Law Schools will be released on October 31, 2013. Lawyers of Color was initially founded as On Being A Black Lawyer but now also produces publications for lawyers of South Asian American, Pacific Asian American, Hispanic, and Native American heritage.
