The University of Arkansas School of Law ranks second in the U.S. in The National Jurist’s annual ranking of “Best Value Law Schools.” This marks the third straight year the School of Law has been named a top 20 “Best Value.” The law school moved up 12 places from 14th last year.
“We are particularly pleased to be recognized for delivering excellent results at an extraordinary value,” said Stacy Leeds, dean of the School of Law. “Our graduates pass the bar exam, find employment, and enter the job market with significantly less debt than students at most other law schools.”
According to The National Jurist the ranking is determined by a formula that uses “the percent of graduates who pass the bar exam, employment rate, tuition, cost of living, and average indebtedness upon graduation.”
