Hispanic BusinessThe Levin College of Law is among the top law schools in the country for Hispanic students, according to the September issue of Hispanic Business (www.hispanicbusiness.com). UF Law placed seventh in the magazine’s annual rankings, maintaing its position in the top tier.

The magazine cited the recent expansion and renovation of the law school’s library and classroom facilities in helping to cement its top-tier ranking.

“Among the school’s many offerings are a joint J.D./M.A. and an annual conference on legal and policy issues in the Americas,” the magazine reported. “Students can take advantage of numerous social activities—including October Hispanic Awareness Month, SangriaFest, Pig Roast and Race Judicata—through the active Spanish American Law Students Association (SALSA), which provides support, resources, and opportunities to Hispanic UF Law students.

“I definitely think there’s a strong Hispanic presence on this campus,” said UF Law student Mildred Gomez, secretary of SALSA. “It’s a good thing that there is a highly-ranked law school that Hispanic students can attend and a school that provides such a diverse background.”
