If you’re considering applying to law school, one of the things you may want to consider in your search is finding a place where you’ll really and truly enjoy the learning experience.
As our readers know, the latest Princeton Review law school rankings are out, and today, we’ll focus on a category that’s very important for students who are looking for an excellent experience while they’re learning the law: the law schools with the best classroom experience.
Which schools do you think rose to the top of this ranking?
First, we’ll begin with the methodology Princeton Review used to determine which law schools that provide students with the best classroom experience. This ranking was based on student survey data, specifically, their answers to questions concerning their professors’ teaching abilities and overall accessibility outside of the classroom, the balance of theory and practical skills in the curricula and the range of courses available, the level of tolerance for differing opinions in class discussion, and their assessments of research resources available.
According to Princeton Review, these are the law schools with the best classroom experience:
1. Stanford University School of Law
2. Duke University School of Law
3. University of Chicago Law School
4. University of Virginia School of Law
5. University of Michigan Law School
6. Georgetown University Law Center
7. University of California, Los Angeles School of Law
8. Boston University School of Law
9. Vanderbilt University Law School
10. University of Notre Dame Law School
It should be no surprise that some of the top schools in the nation made the list for the best classroom experience. There’s a reason they’re considered the cream of the crop when it comes to legal education.
