Each winter, PreLaw Magazine honors law schools that make diversity an imperative of their institution. The designations look beyond the ready numbers of race and gender of matriculating students into the student body makeup, faculty and staff diversity, and programmatic diversity services.

Last winter, CUNY Law was ranked the #3 Most Diverse Law School and has appeared in the top three since 2012. In the fall of 2020, we were ranked #2 in Racial Justice, in good company with Howard University, a premier Historically Black College and University.

This year, the Law School earned honors across multiple designations, but with the addition of featured stories from Reachelle Ramirez, a current 2L student serving as a Latin American Law Students Association (LALSA) Co-Director. Her popular Instagram account @curlylawtina takes followers inside her day-to-day at CUNY Law. An inside look at student life, specifically LALSA chapters at the schools to which she was accepted, was a big part of her decision: “I wanted a school where people looked like me, where people understood me,” she shares in the PreLaw feature. Interim Dean and Professor Eduardo R.C. Capulong ’91 is also interviewed, where he speaks about CUNY Law having “a different vibe” that appealed to him, even as he was hesitant to go to law school. In the end, he notes, it was “transformational.”
