Boyd School of Law Receives A- on The National Jurist Magazine’s List of Most Diverse Law Schools

The UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law was ranked among the most diverse law schools in the November 2014 issue of The National Jurist magazine.

The Boyd School of Law received an A- score. In 2012, the school received a B+ on the same list.

The article reads, “… our analysis showed an interesting development: The drop in enrollment – caused by the souring job market for new law grads – has not been consistent among races. While the number of law students has fallen about 15 percent from 2011 to 2013, the number of minority law students did not match that decline, falling only 4.2 percent.”

To compile the list, The National Jurist looked at each school’s percentage of minority faculty, black students, Asian and Hawaiian students, Hispanic students, American Indian students, and Caucasian students.
