Re: Law Schools

According to me law is important because it acts as a guideline as to what is accepted in society. Without it there would be conflicts between social groups and communities. Yes, a law school is an institution specializing in legal education. Before proceeding with law degree one should understand each and everything about law. Then he should go for a school as it will help him in choosing right school.

Minnesota Law School is one of the best law school in USA. The University of Minnesota Law School is reliably ranked among the best law schools in America, and was ranked 20th by the 2018 U.S. News and World Report "Best Law Schools" rankings.

Re: Law Schools

The shakeup in this year’s rankings was mostly an aftershock of the American Bar Association’s new reporting standards requiring schools to disclose more details about how their graduates fared in the job market. For U.S. News, it was like being a judge in a beauty pageant in which the contestants are wearing ski masks. Take for example, the University of San Francisco School of Law.

Re: Law Schools

I noticed that many of the online law schools do not fare too well in the law school rankings. I imagine this is because the classical rankings system employed is geared to classroom based programs. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of a system used to evaluate and rank online accredited law schools? Also, are the online law programs any good or is there a stigma attached with having an online law degree? Will I be able to get a job after I graduate? I'm going to keep researching the matter but any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

What's New for the 2011 Best Graduate School Rankings

What's new for the upcoming 2011 edition of America's Best Graduate Schools? For the first time, U.S. News has separate peer assessment survey instruments that use a five-point scale for part-time law J.D. programs and part-time M.B.A. programs. As a result, U.S. News is contemplating significant methodology changes in both of these popular rankings. The 2011 edition of the rankings will be published in April 2010.

What will these changes mean for the upcoming part-time law J.D. program rankings?
