Best 10 Law Schools in the U.S.

justice scalePersonally, if I ever decided to become a lawyer, I would want to go to Harvard Law School. Why, you might ask?

Because Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde” went there, duh.

Thankfully the people at US News have a slightly stricter and more selective process for determining which schools make the best law schools. US News analyzes each school, based on the following quality assessment factors: peer assessment score, assessment by lawyers/judges, selectivity, median LSAT scores, median undergrad GPA, acceptance rate, placement success, employment rate for graduates, and bar passage rate.

US News then ranks all 184 law schools that are currently fully accredited by the American Bar Associates and assigns each school a percentage ranking out of 100 percent. However, even US News admits they could be wrong about which school is right for everyone and advises students to start by “finding the school that fits you best.”

However, if you want to only consider the top law schools in the U.S., here is the list of the best ten, along with the full- time tuition cost to attend each school.

1.   Yale University: $46,000
2.    Harvard University: $41,500
3.    Stanford University: $42,080
4.    Columbia University: $45,674
5.    New York University: $42,890
6.    University of California-Berkeley: $43,189
7.    University of Chicago: $41,835
8.    University of Pennsylvania: $44,330
9.    University of Michigan-Ann Arbor: $44,500
10.  Duke University: $42,938

    Hey Syndey,
    This was the most relevant info that I could find when I wrote the blog. I believe it was from 2009. 🙂
    And yes, it is a per year cost. Scary huh? 🙁

    Thanks the schools and full time tuition cost really helped, but you said that quote “students to start by “finding the school that fits you best.” Is there a cheep easy way to do that?
