Best 170 Law Schools

10/10/07--Boston College Law School is listed as one of the nation's top law schools, and appears in the top five for Career Prospects in The Princeton Review's newly released 2008 edition of its "Best 170 Law Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, Oct. 9, 2007, $22.95).

"We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools," Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing, said in a recent press release.  

"Best 170 Law Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services.

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 170, or name one law school best overall.  Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 law schools in various categories.  Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 18,000 students attending the 170 law schools profiled in the book. The lists are posted at
