Law School Rankings

Vigdis Wangchao Boasson, Nancy Jean White

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


It is common to assume that prospective law students may check the rankings of law schools before they decide which schools to apply for pursuing legal studies. Prospective law firms may also check the law school rankings before they make their hiring decisions. Thus, it is utterly important to understand the methodologies used by major ranking institutions and identify the key factors that might influence the ranking of a law school. Specifically, we attempt to investigate the relationships between law school rankings and a set of potential key factors such as law school graduate employment, student faculty ratio, tuition, grants or scholarships for students, enrollment, J.D. or LL.B. degrees awarded, percentage of students passing the bar, GPA, LSAT scores, and geographic location of the law school.
