Santa Clara University's First Year Law School Students Diverse, Academically Strong

The largest pool of applicants since 2004 has yielded an academically strong and ethnically diverse class of first-year law students at Santa Clara University School of Law.

This year’s 247 full-time and 80 part-time students come from 31 U.S. states and nine countries including China, India, and South Korea. They attended 139 different undergraduate schools, and 39 of them already have advanced degrees -- including 13 Ph.D.s.

The incoming class is a bit younger than in prior years: The full-time students have a median age of 24, down from 25 two years ago, while part-timers - who tend to be working professionals - have a median age of 27, down from 29 three years ago. Read more.
