2018 Best Law School Rankings Are Here

Without fail, every year, sometimes a few times per year, surveys get done, and schools will be ranked on various characteristics to help prospective students make a decision on where to apply and what schools to attend. But this year the rankings might be a bit more difficult to decipher.

Recently, The Princeton Review released their 2018 law school rankings, which go beyond just what law school is the best. Law schools were ranked on many factors, including best career prospect, best classroom experience, and more. However, as noted by AboveTheLaw, the results are potentially severely flawed because they are based on student responses to surveys and data provided from the schools themselves.

The Results Are In!

If you're wondering whether your school made it near the top of list, it might take some digging, as The Princeton Review website lists the schools in an unranked list. For your convenience, we've listed the top 5 in some of the more interesting categories.
