UC Davis School of Law makes Princeton Review's national top 10 (3 times)

University of California, Davis, School of Law once again has been recognized as one of the nation’s most inclusive law schools.

The Princeton Review’s newly released “Best Law Schools 2019” rankings place UC Davis in the top 10 - among 165 law schools assessed - in resources for minority and female students, and in faculty diversity.

Princeton Review lists its 165 “Best Law Schools” alphabetically, without assigning overall rankings, but offers top-10 rankings in various categories. UC Davis finished at No. 3 in the Review’s “Greatest Resources for Minority Students” rankings, and No. 7 on its “Greatest Resources for Women” list.

UC Davis School of Law also landed in the Review’s 2019 “Most Diverse Faculty” top 10, at No. 6. King Hall is known for its “minority-majority” faculty – a rarity among the nation’s top-tier law schools.

“We at UC Davis School of Law are proud that, among American law schools, we have a unique combination of academic excellence and diversity in our faculty, students and staff,” Dean Kevin R. Johnson said. “Our community is stronger because of it.”

Davis was the only University of California law school to make Princeton Review’s 2019 “Most Diverse Faculty” and “Resources for Minority Students” national top-10 lists.

According to the Review, its breakout categorical rankings are based on student surveys, school-reported data, or both. For the three categories in which UC Davis made the top 10, the Review incorporated student survey results and school-reported data.

Earlier this year, UC Davis School of Law made the top 10 for student diversity in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings of the nation’s top law schools. It was the only law school in U.S. News’ overall top 40 to crack the top 10 for diversity.
