HONOLULU — Once again the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa‘s William S. Richardson School of Law has been named one of the "Best Law Schools" in the nation. According to the Princeton Review‘s 2006 "Best Law Schools," of 159 of the best ABA-approved law schools, the William S. Richardson School of Law is second when it comes to having the "Best Environment for Minority Students," and closes out the top five with the "Most Diverse Faculty."

The "Best Environment for Minority Students" category was determined by the students‘ assessment of whether they received equal treatment by faculty and fellow students regardless of their ethnicity, and the percentage of underrepresented minorities in the student body. Meanwhile, the law school with the "Most Diverse Faculty" was based on the percentage of minority law school faculty and the students‘ assessment of whether the faculty comprised a broadly diverse group of individuals.

The rankings were compiled by information provided from law school student surveys and statistics reported by law school administrators.
