For the third time in the past several months, the National Jurist has recognized the collective accomplishments of the College of Law. In the magazine’s January issue, Dean Hiram Chodosh is ranked 19th among the top 25 most influential people in legal education.
According to the article, Chodosh “is reforming his law school by adopting an approach similar to a medical school” including expanding the College of Law’s clinical offerings, overseeing the construction of a new building and embracing technology as a teaching tool in the classroom.
The article also mentions the College of Law’s reputation for designing and implementing new educational models emphasizing leadership experience, as well as the school’s “interdisciplinary research projects, clinical and simulated skills training, and the use of technology and global legal education.”
Others on the list include deans and faculty members at Indiana University, Hastings, Washington and Lee, Duke, and elsewhere. The co-founder of the organization Law School Transparency is also included.
In September 2012, the College of Law was selected in the National Jurist’s rankings for both the top 20 Best Value Law Schools and the 20 Most Innovative Law Schools. The organization Law School Transparency also ranked the college as one of the top twenty most transparent law schools for the data it publishes about its students’ career placement record. The College of Law was the only school in the country to make the top twenty in all three of those rankings.
