Above The Law: The Law Schools With The Most Diverse Faculty (2023)

If you’re considering applying to law school, one of the things you may want to consider in your search is finding a place where diversity is embraced, including among its faculty.

As our readers know, the latest Princeton Review law school rankings are out, and today, we’ll focus on a category that’s important for students who are looking for an institution that shares their values when it comes to diversity and inclusion: the law schools with the most diverse faculty.

Which schools do you think rose to the top of this ranking?

First, we’ll begin with the methodology Princeton Review used to determine which law schools have the most diverse faculty. This ranking was based on both school-reported data — the percent of law school faculty from an underrepresented minority group — and student surveys, specifically, their answers to a survey question on whether the faculty comprises a broadly diverse group of individuals.

Per Princeton Review, these are the law schools with the most diverse faculty:

1. Southern University Law Center
2. University of Hawaii at Manoa William S. Richardson School of Law
3. University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law
4. Florida International University College of Law
5. University of Miami School of Law
6. Western State College of Law at Westcliff University
7. University of California-Irvine School of Law
8. Loyola University New Orleans School of Law
9. City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law
10. University of California-Los Angeles School of Law
