NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma College of Law is ranked number 16 out of 200 law schools nationwide in this year’s annual National Jurist list of “Best Value” law schools. The list ranks the top 20 law schools based on placement in legal jobs, bar passage rates and amounts of student debt, among other criteria, and provides letter grades for schools below the top 20.
OU is one of two universities in the Big XII and the only law school in Oklahoma to make the list. This is OU’s second consecutive year in the top 20.
“OU Law is honored to be recognized again as a Top 20 Best Value Law School by National Jurist,” said Dean Joseph Harroz, Jr. “Our ranking reflects that we are providing an unsurpassed legal education at a reasonable price. In the last three years, OU Law has more than tripled the number of employers recruiting at OU Law; added three world-class, full-time faculty; and doubled its scholarship endowment. We are pleased that national publications are recognizing the exceptional value of the OU Law degree.”
National Jurist magazine published their 2013 “Best Value” list in the October issue, available at http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/cypress/nationaljurist1013/#/22. The ranking is based on the following criteria:
• 35 percent employment rate
• 25 percent tuition
• 15 percent average student indebtedness
• 15 percent bar passage rate
• 10 percent cost of living
