Default Rankings, Employment and Costs

The University of Chicago Law School is the graduate school of law at the University of Chicago. It was founded in 1902 by a coalition of donors led by John D. Rockefeller, and is consistently one of the highest-rated law schools in the United States. The U.S. News & World Report ranks it fourth among U.S. law schools, and it is noted particularly for its influence on the economic analysis of law.

Employment

According to the Law School's 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 92.1% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation. The ABA disclosures indicate that 75% of Chicago grads earned starting salaries of $160,000 or greater upon graduation.

Rankings

Chicago ranks second on the "Top 15 Schools From Which the Most 'Prestigious' Law Firms Hire New Lawyers"; first for "Faculty quality based on American Academy of Arts and Sciences Membership"; third for "Supreme Court Clerkship Placement"; and fifth for "Student Quality". The Law School is also notable for having the third highest gross and third highest per capita placement of alumni as U.S. Supreme Court clerkships (16% for the years 2000-2008), with approximately 15-25% of each graduating class going on to a state or federal clerkship. Private career prospects are equally bright for graduates as they routinely place into elite firms.

Costs

The total cost of attendance (indicating the cost of tuition, fees, and living expenses) at the Law School for the 2013-2014 academic year is $78,324.The Law School Transparency estimated debt-financed cost of attendance for three years is $297,325.
