College of Law Scores 29th Among 157 Law Schools in New National Jurist Rankings

The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law ranked among the top 18% of U.S. law schools according to new rankings compiled by The National Jurist. The magazine’s February issue includes a story, “Building a Better Ranking,” that focuses on four categories—postgraduate success, student satisfaction, affordability and diversity–to assess the nation’s best law schools. The College of Law was ranked 29th among the 157 law schools included in the list.

The College of Law did particularly well in the areas of employment and the Super Lawyers grade, earning an A- in each category. It also excelled in the Rate My Prof category, where its 4.25 score was among the top five of the 157 schools included in the survey. In addition, the college earned B+ grades in the areas of Professor Availability and Affordability.

Dean Hiram Chodosh said, “Notwithstanding the imperfection and limitation of rankings in general and this one in particular, we are pleased in particular by our high ratings in employment, teaching performance, and value.”
