The University of Toledo College of Law has been named a “best value” law school by a national magazine for the third year in a row.
National Jurist magazine named the UT College of Law among 60 U.S. law schools in its annual “best value” honor roll for 2011.
The UT College of Law is the only law school in Ohio or Michigan to earn the distinguished designation for 2009, 2010 and 2011.
The magazine’s rankings are based on a school’s in-state tuition, average student debt, bar exam passage rate and percentage of graduates employed nine months after graduation. The rankings identify schools that carry a low price tag and prepare their students well for today’s competitive legal job market.
“This year’s designation recognizes what those here have known for years: The University of Toledo College of Law provides a high-quality education at an affordable price,” said Daniel Steinbock, dean of the college. “In today’s economic climate, getting good value in legal education is essential.”
