Southwestern Named a "Best" Law School by The Princeton Review

Southwestern is one of the nation’s most outstanding law schools, according to The Princeton Review.  The education services company includes the school in the new 2017 edition of its annual feature, “The Best 172 Law Schools” online at http://www.princetonreview.com/law-school-rankings/best-law-schools,

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We recommend Southwestern as one of the best institutions to earn a law school degree. We chose the 172 schools in this cohort based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of 19,400 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book.”

The Princeton Review’s survey asked students at the 172 law schools about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The Princeton Review explains the basis for each rating score in the book and on its site at http://www.princetonreview.com/law-school-rankings/ratings.
