FSU College of Law
Florida State Universityâ€™s College of Law has ranked the 8th best value law school in the nation by preLaw magazine.
The ranking, which is published in preLawâ€™s fall 2019 issue, weighs important student outcomes â€” bar passage and employment rates â€” against tuition, cost of living and indebtedness.
â€œWe are thrilled to be ranked among the nationâ€™s top 10 best law schools in terms of value, especially because employment rate is the highest weighted factor in this ranking,â€� said FSU College of Law Dean Erin Oâ€™Connor. â€œProviding students with a relatively low-cost, top-notch legal education and opportunities to gain hands-on experience are keys to helping our students launch successful careers in their chosen areas.â€�
According to preLaw, the rankings are designed to find the law schools where graduates have excellent chances of passing the bar and getting a legal job without taking on a ton of debt. In addition to being ranked the nationâ€™s 8th best, FSU is the highest ranked Florida law school on preLawâ€™s list of the nationâ€™s top 25 best value schools.
The national ranking reflects the law schoolâ€™s strong employment and bar passage results. According to American Bar Association data, Florida State is the No. 1 law school in Florida and No. 28 nationally in terms of 2018 graduates who passed a bar examination on their first attempt. In addition, at a rate of 94.48 percent, FSU Law ranks among the nationâ€™s top law schools in terms of graduates who passed a bar examination in any jurisdiction within two years of graduating.
