Top 20 Law Schools

US Blog Above the Law has compiled the rankings with a comparison to the last year rankings of  top 14 law schools, otherwise known as the “T14” in the legal community.

However, there is some change when it comes to the recruiters ranking these law schools. (See detailed rankings here)

US News said, “Currently, Yale University occupies the top spot in the U.S. News Best Law School rankings. But now Harvard University has something to crow about. In the first ever ranking of law schools by hiring officials at the country’s top law firms, the Boston school has beaten out its archrival in New Haven, Conn. Yale is tied for the second spot with Stanford University in the U.S. News survey, which was sent last fall to 750 hiring partners and recruiters at law firms who made the 2010 Best Law Firms rankings produced jointly by U.S.News and the publication Best Lawyers. The response rate was 14 percent”.
