From Dean Annette Clark
I always appreciate the chance to connect with alumni through this monthly message, and I have some very good news to share in this issue. We have moved back into the top 100 law schools in the 2015 U.S. News Rankings, to #87. Our Legal Writing Program remains the top-ranked such program in the country, our Clinical Program is ranked 18th, and our Part-Time Program is ranked 25th. We are also again on the list of the most diverse law schools.
While this ranking system is a decidedly imperfect and incomplete measure of the quality of the legal education we provide, we are grateful for the recognition. It remains an important reputational factor for you — our alumni — as well as our students seeking work and prospective students weighing their options about where to enroll.
Speaking of alumni, what a joy it was to present Judge Anita Crawford-Willis '86 the 2014 Women's Law Caucus Woman of the Year Award. "Judge Anita" is among our most dedicated alumni and has mentored countless students. We were all inspired by her speech in which she urged each of us to reach back to assist those who are coming behind us. Thank you, Judge Crawford-Willis!
I'm also looking forward to honoring Malou Chavez '10 and Emily Gonzalez '10, along with Professor Bob Chang, at the Latina/o Community Awards Reception this week. I hope you'll join us for this or another upcoming event soon.
Enjoy the longer days and the approach of spring!
