UC Davis School of Law Named to ‘Diversity Honor Roll'

The National Jurist has named UC Davis School of Law as one of the nation's most diverse law schools, listing King Hall in the magazine's "Diversity Honor Roll." The Honor Roll is published in the magazine's November 2012 issue.

The publication assigned a diversity score for all accredited U.S. law schools based upon the number of minority students and faculty members, and gave each school a total score by combining faculty and student scores.  Law schools with an overall score of 6.0 or more are named to the Honor Roll.  King Hall was one of 27 schools to be part of the Honor Roll for 2012.

UC Davis School of Law consistently has ranked among the leaders in law school diversity.  Recent years have seen King Hall place 23rd in the U.S. News & World Report Diversity Index and rank 10th in Princeton Review's listing of Most Diverse Law Faculties.

"From the beginning, UC Davis School of Law has embraced diversity in its many different forms," said Dean Kevin R. Johnson.  "Housed in a building dedicated to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., our Law School has long been among the most racially, socioeconomically, and otherwise diverse of any top-tier law school, and the most welcoming for non-traditional students of all nationalities, ages, faiths, immigration statuses, and backgrounds. In the last few months, the students have formed a military veterans group. We are truly proud and privileged to be recognized among the nation's most diverse law schools."
