Could this law school ranking unseat US News? (video)

Elie Mystal, editor at Above the Law, tells Bloomberg Law’s Lee Pacchia that his blog’s new law school rankings sought to list the top 50 American law schools by relying on an “outcome-based” methodology. Mystal says that focusing on the costs and rewards of a legal education allows this ranking to determine which law schools yield “the most bang for this extreme buck.”

The site’s goal is to displace US News as the leading law school rankings. Mystal says that his site’s focus on legal employment, along with its often snarky attitude that appeals to younger readers, give it a leg up on the competition.
