Hispanic Business Magazine has published its annual list of “Top Law Schools for Hispanics” and UM Law ranked second, behind the University of New Mexico Law School. The citation noted that,
Located near Miami, the University of Miami School of Law has a long tradition of educating Hispanic lawyers. Alumni include prominent state and federal judges, leaders in national and state bar organizations, partners in both large and mid-size law firms, and leading public interest lawyers.
(What it failed to say is that we also have a strong international business curriculum with particular emphasis on Latin America, and students have the opportunity to learn comparative law in Spanish and to study abroad in Spain.)
I’m not sure I have the greatest faith in the ranking methodology, but it’s always nicer to be praised than ignored.
