The William S. Richardson School of Law is committed to maintaining the diverse community that has been one of its strengths since it opened 1973.  In 2013, The Princeton Review named the Law School the Best Environment for Minority Students, the 3rd Most Diverse Faculty, and the 5th Most Chosen by Older Students.

The law school attracts students with diverse backgrounds and interests, which is reflected in the approximately 35 student organizations that are active on campus each year.

To learn more about the diversity of the Richardson community, please join us for our upcoming Students of Color and Cultural Diversity Open House. Student representatives will discuss the transition to law school and their experiences at Richardson.
