School of Law Ranked Among Top 50 Law Schools
Find out more about the report here.

WASHINGTON (March 4, 2014) – The Howard University School of Law was recently ranked as one of the top 50 Go-To Law Schools in a report by the National Law Journal & Legal Times (NLJ). The report highlights law schools that produce the most new associates to the nation’s largest law firms.

The schools on the Go-To list were identified based on the percentage of 2013 law graduates who took jobs as first-year associates at one of NLJ’s 250 firms.

Howard Law, which was listed among law schools with significantly higher tuition costs, also outperformed its U.S. News ranking by the largest margin of any law school on the list.

“These rankings are a source of pride,” said Okianer Christian Dark, Interim Dean of the School of Law. “Students perform exceptionally well while at Howard Law School. Our students know they are highly sought after and that encourages them to excel even more.”

In 2012, the Howard University School of Law was ranked as one of the top 20 schools in the nation for producing public service graduates by The National Jurist magazine. The schools were identified based on data collected from American Bar Association law schools across the nation. Top-rated schools had strong showings in job placement, curriculum and standard of living. Howard’s ranking was within the government sector category. The other public service categories ranked by the magazine were prosecution and public defenders, state and local clerkships and public interest. The rankings appear in the January 2012 issue of the magazine.
