UCI Law Recognized for Diversity, Federal Clerkships


PreLaw magazine, in its winter 2018 issue, lauded UCI Law for its commitment to diversity, ranking it the second best law school for Asian students, and 16th best law school for Hispanic students.

The magazine also listed UCI Law sixth in the nation and second in the state of California for its federal clerkship placement rate, behind Yale, Stanford, Harvard, University of Chicago and Duke.

Calling UCI Law “a leading school for Asians,” preLaw acknowledged UCI Law's Asian Pacific American Law Student Association (APALSA), which won Affiliate of the Year from the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association in consecutive years.

The magazine also cites UCI Law’s Inclusion and Diversity Committee. Comprised of two faculty members, three staff members, and six students (two from each class,) the committee’s charge is to examine how UCI Law can better succeed in its goal of being a place where all students feel fully included in a warm, welcoming, diverse environment.
