“As more professional schools strive toward providing students with a well-rounded educational experience, diversity becomes increasingly important,” said Felecia Epps, dean of FAMU College of Law.
“It has always been part of our mission to increase the representation of underserved populations within the legal profession, and we are proud to be acknowledged as a regional and national leader for our efforts towards diversity in legal education,” Epps said.
Along with the U.S. News ranking, the FAMU College of Law was recognized in the Winter 2017 issue of PreLaw magazine for diversity – ranking seventh nationally with an A+ grade. In the same issue, FAMU Law ranked fourth in the nation for outperformance on the Bar Exam. This ranking was derived from predictions of bar exam results, based on LSAT scores of the 2013 and 2014 entering class.
