Belmont’s College of Law was listed as one of the Top 20 Law Schools for Women based on a report by Enjuris, compiling data from the American Bar Association.
More than 60% of the entering class for Belmont’s College of Law is female, aligning with the national upward trend in the attendance of women in law school over the years. Until 2016, men held the majority of students enrolling in juris doctor programs.
“We are excited and proud to be one of the top law schools for women,” Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Law Deborah Farringer said. “This is our third year in a row in the top 20 for female enrollment and we hope that we are creating a proud tradition of attracting strong, smart women and training them to be amazing future lawyers.”
The rigorous academics, accomplished faculty and alumni base and gender-diverse cohorts continue to distinguish the College of Law at Belmont from competitor institutions.
“I am hopeful that Belmont University College of Law is playing its part in training capable and accomplished female attorneys who will start making greater headway into the roles of senior partners of law firms and general counsel for major corporations,” Farringer said. “We are excited to be a part of the trend of increased females in the legal profession.”
