St. Thomas Law Ranks Top 5 in the Nation by Princeton Review for “Best Environment for Minority Students”

The 2015 edition of the Princeton Review has been released and St. Thomas University School of Law has maintained its Top 5 national ranking for having the “Best Environment for Minority Students.”

Based in Miami, Florida, St. Thomas Law has continually attracted a diverse student population and is a highly-regarded, student-centered law school where diversity is cherished, a commitment to human rights and international law flourishes, and the Catholic heritage of social justice enhances the education of all faiths.

“The survey reflects the quality of our law school and our commitment to every student's success,” stated Dean of St. Thomas University School of Law, Alfredo Garcia. “We adhere and live up to our mission and values in our continuing quest for excellence.”

In order for a law school to be ranked it must meet the Princeton Review’s criteria for academic excellence and be approved by the American Bar Association. In developing the ranking, Princeton Review surveyed almost 20,000 students at 169 law schools and collected data from school administrators. The survey asked students about their school's academics, student body, campus life, and their career plans. They also used data on admissions, academics, financial aid, and employment information.

The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its test-prep courses, tutoring services, college rankings and line of 150 books published by Random House. It is not affiliated with Princeton University.
