According to recent research Howard University, a historically black college or university (HBCU) in Washington D.C., sends more than 21% of its graduates into large-firm associate jobs, earning the No. 22 spot on the NLJ’s list of “Go To Law Schools,” says The National Law Journal.

“We have some very competitive students who firms believe can perform comparably to students from other schools,” LuEllen Conti, Howard’s career services director, told the NLJ.
The law firm Dorsey & Whitney, with over 10 locations in the United States and a location in London and Hong Kong, currently has 10 Howard alumni in all, and one of their attorney’s located in Utah was recently named one of Utah Business 2015 40 Under 40.
