Princeton Review Names Southern University Law Center Most Diverse Law School

In the 2013 edition of the Princeton Review’s “The Best 168 Law Schools,” The Southern University Law Center (SULC) was named as the school with the most diverse faculty in the United States.

In the book, the schools are not ranked from number one to number 168 and there is no school named as the best overall law school. The book does feature 11 ranking lists for top 10 law schools in multiple categories. Those categories include “Most Diverse Faculty,” “Most Chosen By Older Students,” in which SULC ranks #2; and “Best Environment for Minority Students,” in which SULC ranks # 3.

The SULC Chancellor, Freddie Pitcher, Jr., said that the faculty and the administration at the SULC are pleased and not surprised with the rankings. “Through the evening division, we have attracted more mature students,” Pitcher said.

“Strong supporters of diversity in the educational setting, we believe that the contributions of mature students, as well as that of various racial/ethnic groups and females, are valuable and beneficial assets to the academic environment of the Law Center,” he said. “The students recognize that we encourage an inclusive environment.”

The Princeton Review surveys 18,000 students who attend the 168 law schools that are profiled in the book. The surveys were conducted during the 2011-2012, 2010-2011 and 2009-2010 school years on the internet. During these years, SULC boasted the following statistics: a 14:1 student-faculty ratio; 4 percent faculty part-time; 37 percent faculty female; 61 percent faculty underrepresented minority, and 41 total faculty.
