HONOLULU — The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa‘s William S. Richardson School of Law has the "Best Environment for Minority Students" and the "Most Diverse Faculty," according to the Princeton Review‘s 2005 "Best Law School" rankings.

The rankings were compiled by information provided from law school student surveys and statistics reported by law school administrators. The William S. Richardson School of Law was the only law school to receive two first place standings in the 11 categories.

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. 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.

Other categories included "Best Overall Academic Experience," "Toughest to Get Into," "Professors Rock (Legally Speaking)," "Most Competitive Students," "Best Career Prospects," "Candidates for Heritage Foundation Fellowships (Or Students Lean to the Right)," "Candidates for Center for American Progress Fellowships (Or Students Lean to the Left)," "Best Quality of Life," and "Most Welcoming of Older Students."
