Vanderbilt University Law School was named one of the top 25 law schools in the country for black students by On Being A Black Lawyer Magazine, a resource that supports African-Americans’ success in law school. In addition, the University of Memphis School of Law was named a top five regional school for black students. Selection was based on eight factors: cost, alumni placement, number of black alumni, selectivity in admissions, black student population, strength of the local legal job market, local cost of living and size of the local black population. Finally, the magazine named the University of Tennessee College of Law as a “best bargain.”
