Who topped the law school rankings based on The Princeton Review compilation?
Earlier today, Princeton Review released its 2010 rankings of the top full-time U.S. law school programs. The organization ranks law schools in 11 different categories based on student surveys. This year, 172 law schools were eligible. Despite long-time criticisms about graduate school rankings, law school rankings play a very dramatic role in the world of legal education.

The National PreLaw Magazine compiled its 2009 guide to Best Value Law Schools by surveying all 202 ABA-accredited law schools. “Best Value” included tuition under $25,000 per year for public and under $30,000 for private schools; an employment rate of at least 85 percent within six months of graduation; and a first-time bar passage rate higher than the respective state average. All data came from the 2009 Law School Admissions Council’s “Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools.” Sources: http://www.hawaii.edu/news/article.php?
