NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma College of Law jumped 14 places in US News & World Report’s 2014 list of “Best Law Schools,” ranked as the 68th best law school in the country in this year’s survey.
In the past several months, OU Law has received a number of accolades in national rankings, including being recognized as the 15th “Best Value” law school and among the top 15 percent of all law schools by National Jurist magazine.
“While we don’t put too much weight on any one survey, we are encouraged by these national rankings that recognize the special things that are happening at OU Law,” OU Law Dean Joe Harroz said. “We believe students are seeking a first-class legal education at an affordable price so that they may pursue the careers of their dreams, without being limited by excessive student debt.
“It is only appropriate that emphasis be placed on the student experience and career development. With recent results including more than a tripling of employers in our Spring Recruitment Program and with the addition of innovative, new programs that give our students a competitive edge in the marketplace, we are more excited than ever about the future of our students at OU Law.”
