Washburn Law a 'Best Value', Outstanding Law School

Washburn University School of Law was named a "Best Value" by National Jurist's sister publication preLaw magazine, in its Fall 2011 issue. preLaw recognized 60 schools that offer an affordable education with great job prospects and bar pass rates.

Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, commented on the selection process. "We recommend Washburn Law to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn a law degree. We chose the 167 law schools for this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our student survey for the book."

The Best 167 Law Schools: 2012 Edition includes two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement.

The Princeton Review does not rank the law schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 167, or name one law school best overall.
