Legal Pros Rank BC Law 19th
Boston College Law School ranked 19th in Business Insider's recent list of the “50 Best Law Schools in America,” based on a survey of legal professionals.
In its introduction to the rankings, the New York City-based business and technology news website noted the high price of education and dim outlook on the legal job market as reasons why “choosing the right law school makes all the difference.” Business Insider surveyed more than 400 American legal professionals to select the 10 law schools that would best serve a legal career.
Harvard Law School was first, followed by Yale, Columbia, Stanford and Georgetown. Other law schools and programs in the survey included NYU (8th), Duke (9th), Penn (12th), Virginia (14th), Vanderbilt (18th), Texas-Austin (20th), BU (22nd), Southern California (26th), Fordham (33rd), North Carolina-Chapel Hill (34th), Wake Forest (41st) and Ohio State (47th).
