Temple Law has been ranked 17th among the top 25 law
schools nationally for black law students in the 2014 Black
Student's Guide to Law Schools, published by Lawyers of Color.
Temple and the University of Pennsylvania are the only
regional schools to appear on the list. Leading the pack are
historically top-ranked schools Harvard, Stanford, University of
Chicago, Howard, and Yale; Temple edged out other prestigious
schools like Northwestern, University of Maryland, Notre Dame,
Cornell, Vanderbilt, and Emory. Rankings are based on metrics that
include job placement rates and black student and faculty
percentages, among other measures.
