GULFPORT, Fla. (PRWEB) April 28, 2016
Stetson law school ranks No. 20 among the nation’s most diverse law schools, according to the spring 2016 issue of preLaw.
The article, “The most diverse law schools,” by Rebecca Larsen, examines the definition of diversity and what makes a diverse law school. A study referenced in the article by Texas A&M University School of Law’s director of program development Jack Manhire lists Stetson among the top 20 law schools by the country’s diversity. Manhire looked at how well student bodies represent the target population of law school applicants, using data from the American Bar Association and U.S. Census Bureau for his study.
Stetson law is home to diverse student organizations, interscholastic activities and competitions. Among the 2015 entering J.D. class at Stetson are 27.7 percent minority and 54.6 percent female students. Students range in age from 20-57 and represent 25 states and 83 colleges and universities. More than half of all new J.D. students in the class receive scholarships.
