The University of Texas School of Law has the best classroom experience and the University of Virginia School of Law has the best quality of life, according to the Princeton Review’s new rankings.
The review’s publication Best 174 Law Schools is based on surveys of 18,000 law students and school-reported data, according to a press release.
Other law schools taking top place were Boston University for best professors, the University of Michigan for best career prospects, the City University of New York-Queens College for most welcoming of older students, and Howard University for the best environment for minority students and the most diverse faculty.
Yale University was ranked toughest to get into, followed by Harvard University, Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Pennsylvania.
