The Top Five Things to Consider When Selecting A Law School
If you’ve been practicing law for any amount of time, you’ve almost certainly been asked your opinion on where a prospective student should go to law school. After all, choosing a law school is one of most important decisions future lawyers will make. No one wants to risk his or her time and money on a poor decision, so students often look to their role models for advice.
With the prestige of over ten years of nationally recognized excellence, Super Lawyers has launched a new website: LawSchools.SuperLawyers.com. Created to help prospective students research their decision, this resource guides users through the top five things they should consider when selecting a law school:
- Type of law they want to practice
- School location
- School environment
- Likelihood of acceptance
- Job accessibility
In addition, this website includes easily searchable law school profiles for the 200 ABA-approved schools with information such as cost of tuition, median GPA, LSAT requirements and average grant amount.
“We recognize the importance of legal education to producing the quality lawyers of tomorrow,” said Julie Gleason, Director of Research for Super Lawyers. “We hope our site provides a wide variety of expertise, so prospective students can make an informed decision and get acquainted with accredited law schools.”
The Super Lawyers mission is to bring visibility to outstanding attorneys—so it makes sense that they would also want to shed light on the law schools that produce those attorneys. As part of this website they are proud to introduce three law school lists:
- Top 10 Schools for Value and Quality of Education
- Top 10 Schools for Pro Bono Graduation Requirements
- Top 10 Schools with Highest Caliber Graduates, Most Prepared to Practice
