NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma College of Law was ranked number 15 out of 200 law schools nationwide and given a grade of “A+” on this year’s annual National Jurist list of “Best Value” law schools. The national list ranks the top 20 law schools based on placement in legal jobs, bar passage rates and amounts of student debt, among other criteria, and provides letter grades for schools below the top 20.
OU is one of three universities in the Big XII and the only law school in Oklahoma to make the list. For the past two years, the OU College of Law has been included in the “Best Value” law schools list with an “A-” grade. In 2009, before they assigned letter grades to schools outside of the top 20, OU Law was ranked number 30.
National Jurist magazine published their 2012 “Best Value” list in the September issue, available at http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/cypress/nationaljurist0912/#/20.
Their methodology of the rankings is the following criteria:
• 35 percent job placement rate
• 25 percent tuition
• 15 percent average student indebtedness
• 15 percent bar passage rate
• 10 percent cost of living
