NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma College of Law jumped 10 spots in the latest US News & World Report 2015 Ranking of Best Law Schools to #58. The ranking is the highest by any Oklahoma law school in survey history.
OU Law has received a number of recent accolades, including:
• For the second year in a row, OU Law was named a Top 20 “Best Value” Law School by National Jurist Magazine
• No. 4 “Best Quality of Life” by The Princeton Review
• No. 19 Moot Court Program by The Blakely Advocacy Institute
“At OU Law, we are committed to students and their future. While we do not place too much weight on any one survey, we are encouraged OU Law continues to garner national attention,” said OU Law Dean Joe Harroz. “We have consistently kept tuition among the lowest in the country, so our students can pursue the career of their choice without being limited by excessive debt.”
OU Law continues to focus resources on what is most important to students. In the past three years, the College of Law has more than tripled the number of employers participating in the on-campus recruitment programs. While many law schools have cut career staff, OU Law recently added a third career development counselor. OU continues to add new and innovative programs providing students with a competitive edge in the marketplace.
