  • March 13th, 2019

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Hugh F. Culverhouse Jr. School of Law at The University of Alabama is ranked 25th among the nation’s top law schools, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Graduate Schools” rankings for 2020.

This marks the eighth consecutive year that UA’s Law School has been ranked in the Top 30 law schools in the nation. The UA Law School ranked eighth among public law schools in this year’s survey.

“I have long believed that, if we attend to those things that enhance the quality of life within the School of Law, good things will follow,” said Dr. Mark E. Brandon, dean of the UA Law School. “It’s nice to see this philosophy affirmed in the most recent release from U.S. News.”

The U.S. News rankings of 192 law schools fully accredited by the American Bar Association are based on a weighted average of 12 measures, including quality assessment, selectivity and placement success. Data were collected in fall 2018 and early 2019.
