The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education Magazine has ranked St. Mary’s University School of Law fourth in the nation for educational institutions conferring the most law degrees on Hispanics.
The magazine named the Top 25 schools that award the most degrees to Hispanic law students; the University of Texas topped the list with The University of Miami and American University tied for the second position and St. Mary’s tied for fourth place with Florida International University and Saint Thomas University.
“We are very proud of this achievement and look forward to rating even higher next year,” said Charles E. Cantú, dean of St. Mary’s School of Law. St. Mary’s is a Hispanic-serving institution that services San Antonio and South Texas and is, on average, the second highest law school in the state for minority enrollment.
The Hispanic Outlook’s information is based on National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) data.
