UMass among top 5 regional law schools for black students

COURTESY UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS DARTMOUTH
THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS School of Law at Dartmouth, the only public law school in Massachusetts, was selected as one of the top five law schools in the Eastern region for black students in the Lawyers of Color Black Student’s Guide to Law Schools 2014.

DARTMOUTH – The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Law earned a place among the top five law schools in the region for black students in the Lawyers of Color Black Student’s Guide to Law Schools 2014.

The Lawyers of Color selection committee evaluated each law school’s admission standards, cost, black student population and regional legal job market in awarding the top designations.

The UMass School of Law, established in 2010, is the only public law school in Massachusetts.

“UMass Law has a special responsibility to create access to law school and to enroll a diverse student body,” said Mary Lu Bilek, dean of the UMass law school, in a statement Wednesday. “We embrace that responsibility because we know that diversity increases the value of our educational program, creates a community that welcomes students from underrepresented communities in the profession, and increases the possibility that our laws will reflect the constitutional values of fairness and equality.”

Rutgers School of Law at Newark, the University of Connecticut School of Law, the State University of New York Buffalo Law School and the City University of New York School of Law also placed in the Eastern regional ranking top five.
