For the fifth time, Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law has received the Law School Admissions Council’s (LSAC) DiscoverLaw.Org Diversity Matters Award. This year, the law school placed third among the top finalists in the country.

The national award recognizes law schools throughout the country that perform exceptional outreach efforts targeted to students of under-represented racial and ethnic groups.

“We are extremely honored to receive this award from the Law School Admission Council,” said Justin Cruz, Assistant Dean of Admission and Diversity Initiatives for Fowler School of Law.” Our commitment to inspire the next generation of students from historically under-represented backgrounds to pursue a legal education is a paramount goal of our diversity initiatives. The award represents the collaborative efforts of the Fowler Law community in achieving that goal.”

Chapman joins University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law and University of Denver Sturm College of Law in the top three. The other top 10 schools were Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, Brooklyn Law School, Hofstra University Maurice A. Deane School of Law, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law, and University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
