UW Law School Earns "A" for Diversity in National Jurist

UW Law School has earned an “A” in The National Jurist’s recent article on the country’s most diverse law schools.

The grade, based on the percent of students and faculty who are minorities, modified by how a school compares with its state average for minority population, reflects UW Law’s longstanding commitment to diversity.

Students of color comprise more than 25 percent of our student body. As a national law school, we recruit students from across the country and our current students represent 30 states. The faculty also reflects diversity in race, sexual orientation, religion, and national origin.

As the “A” grade suggests, UW Law School is committed to recruiting and retaining talented and diverse students, faculty and staff who enrich our law school community. We believe diversity improves legal education.
