NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma College of Law has been ranked 10th in the nation out of more than 200 law schools as a “Best Value” law school, according to National Jurist magazine. OU Law is the only Oklahoma law school in the top 25.
“At the OU College of Law, we are humbled by this recent distinction, and we are proud of our students and alumni for their achievements,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “Together with other recent accolades, this newest honor demonstrates how OU Law is elevating the standard of excellence while providing the highest quality legal education at a reasonable price for our students.”
In its methodology for the Best Value rankings, National Jurist based its findings on several factors, including percentage of graduates who pass the bar exam, employment rate, tuition, cost of living and average indebtedness upon graduation.
The Top 10 Best Value ranking is the latest in a series of recent major honors for OU Law, which include:
