National publication ranks USD School of Law Best Value for fourth year in a row
In addition to bar passage, the magazine’s rankings take into account in-state tuition, debt and the percent of graduates employed nine months after getting their degree. The top 20 list is featured in the August issue of preLaw magazine and is dominated by public law schools, including the top five schools on the list.
“Being ranked a ‘best value’ demonstrates the commitment our institution has to providing a quality, reputable legal education at an affordable cost. Receiving this recognition four years in a row, even during this time of rising educational costs, further demonstrates our faculty and administration’s dedication to keep legal education accessible while preparing our students for a successful career after law school,” said Tom Geu, dean of the USD School of Law.
Criteria used to identify the “Best Value” law schools, according to the magazine, were based on a two-year average for both first time bar pass rate and percent of students employed. A complete list of “Best Value” law schools and additional information about the rankings can be found at www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/cypress/prelaw_2014backtoschool/#/32.
