'U.S. News' revamps tiers in law school rankings

, The National Law Journal

The real attention-getter on this year's list will likely be the extension of numerical rankings beyond the top 100 and elimination of the old alphabetically listed third and fourth tiers.

  • Huh?

    So all of the talk about transparency and only in USNews is there no unemployment - look at the percentages of employed graduates at any ranking. Two thoughts - reward the law schools that post the percentage of employed who are really employed by the school or some school sponsored fellowship like Duke or SMU. Those were championed in this publication. The second is to look out for USDE to start investigating - law schools are starting to look like trade schools with deceptive advertising.

    The US News & World Report law school rankings are totally meaningless. Fordham Law only ranked #30. Please.
