ORANGE, Calif., June 17, 2015 — Chapman University’s Dale E. Fowler School of Law has placed among the top finalists in the nation in the Law School Admission Council’s (LSAC) Diversity Matters Awards.  Fowler Law placed third in the competition, which recognizes law schools throughout the U.S. and Canada that have performed exceptional outreach efforts and activities targeted to students from racial and ethnic groups under-represented in the legal profession.

“We know that your institution understands that ‘diversity matters’ in legal education, and is dedicated to helping us change the numbers,” said the LSAC when announcing Chapman’s award. “Let’s work together to provide students, early in the pipeline, with the information and guidance necessary for successful admission to law school.”

“Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law is honored to be among the top three finalists for the 2015 Diversity Matters Award, an award given to a law school that demonstrated the highest level of outreach to encourage racially and ethnically diverse students to explore higher education and the legal profession through community events,” said Karman Hsu, assistant dean of admissions and diversity initiatives for Fowler Law. “We hope to inspire students from historically under-represented groups to pursue a legal education and represent the legal needs of an increasingly diverse society.  This award is the result of a collaborative effort with the Law School Admission Office and the Fowler Law community.  Special thanks to Dean Tom Campbell for his continued support in the area of law school diversity, and to Colby Carter, former associate director of admissions, who played a lead role in spearheading our diversity efforts.”

The University of Denver’s Sturm School of Law placed first in the competition.  Other Top Ten finishers included Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law, Lewis and Clark Law School, Loyola University Chicago Law School, University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, Southwestern Law School, Syracuse University College of Law, University of Washington School of Law and the University of Toronto Faculty of Law.
