Pride Bite: NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center Ranks Among Top 5 Law Schools for Hispanics

shark pride logoNova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Shepard Broad Law Center was ranked 5th nationally in HispanicBusiness.com’s 2014 Annual Diversity Report as one of the Best Law Schools for Diversity Practices . In addition, the Law Center placed 3rd, among the top 10 schools identified in the percentage of “Hispanic graduate enrollment” and “J.D. degrees earned by Hispanics.”  NSU’s Law Center continues to garner top rankings nationally as a leader in providing quality legal education to diverse populations.

According to HispanicBusiness.com, the 40 schools that appear in the 2014 Best Schools for Hispanics edition, represents the “cream of the crop when it comes to institutions of higher learning with Hispanic postgraduate enrollments.” The rankings are based on several categories including enrollment, faculty numbers and programs designed to attract and retain Hispanic students. Founded in 1979, HispanicBusiness.com focuses on growth developments in the U.S. Hispanic market. The company delivers research-driven content on topics such as economic trends, diversity and philanthropy, supply-chain development, best business practices, and career development opportunities.

Earlier this year, U.S. News &World Report’s issue of Best Graduate Schools for Law, released March 11, ranked the NSU Law Center No. 3 nationally for diversity with a 0.65 diversity index. The Law School Diversity Index also indicates that the Law Center ranks first for diversity among all law schools in Florida. The Diversity Index identified law schools in which students are most likely to encounter classmates from a different racial or ethnic group. In compiling the data, U.S. News & World Report did not include law schools enrolling a large proportion of students from any one ethnic group, since there is a low likelihood that law students at that school will encounter peers from a different ethnic group than their own.
