College of Law on The National Jurist‘s Best Value List; Rankings Due in September

 

UT’s College of Law is one of the nation’s fifty-four best value law schools, according to The National Jurist magazine.

The magazine looks at a number of academic and financial variables, including the law school’s tuition, student debt accumulation, employment success, bar passage rate, and cost of living. Employment is given the greatest weight, 35 percent, because of recent woes in hiring.

The magazine will grade each of the schools A, A-, or B+ and rank the top twenty in its September issue.

“Our focus is on preparing our students so they are well-prepared for the real world and are able to find good jobs in which they immediately excel,” said Douglas A. Blaze, dean of the College of Law. “We’re really proud that we are able to do this while remaining accessible and affordable.”
