New Law School Rankings by USNews
The new U.S. News Law School Rankings for 2011 have been published: The biggest jumps are UCDavis and William and Mary into the top 25. Minor movement among the top 10 – it will be interesting to see how many people Berkeley loses from the incoming class because they went from 6 to 9. Of course, as I always say, the law school can’t possibly have changed that much in a year but the tiniest change in statistics allows U.S. News to sell its annual America’s Best Graduate Schools issue. If things didn’t change, the issue wouldn’t sell.
