The University of Hawai?i at M?noa’s William S. Richardson School of Law topped the nation as the best law school for Asian students in a new survey released in the spring 2021 issue of preLaw Magazine.
The magazine ranked the top 25 law schools in the nation. The UH law school continues to lead the country with 50.1 percent of its students identifying as either Asian or Native Hawaiian.
Additionally, 41.7 percent of the faculty are identified as being members of a minority group.
PreLaw’s methodology included: grading schools based on the percentage of students in each ethnic group (50 percent of score); the percentage of minority professors (25 percent of score); and diversity services offered by the school (25 percent of score).
UH law Dean Camille Nelson noted that Richardson’s diversity is an important strength, bringing together students with a rich array of backgrounds, interests and perspectives.
“Our diversity is intrinsic to our excellence,” said Nelson. “We welcome the recognition of the diverse and inclusive excellence that makes Richardson law a special place to learn to be a legal professional ready for the world’s opportunities and challenges.”
