S.J. Quinney College of Law named a “best” law school by The Princeton Review

The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College Law is one of the nation’s most outstanding law schools, according to new survey results released by The Princeton Review this month.  The education services company includes the College of Law in the 2019 release of its annual feature, “The Best 165 Law Schools” online at https://www.princetonreview.com/best-law-schools.

“We recommend the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law as one of the best institutions to earn a law school degree,” said Robert Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. “We chose the 165 schools in this cohort based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of 17,700 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book.” 

The Princeton Review’s survey asked students at the 165 law schools about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys that were used for this edition were collected during the 2017-18, 2016-17, and 2015-16 academic years.

“We are pleased to be recognized by The Princeton Review for our high quality legal education,” said Robert Adler, dean of the S.J. Quinney College of Law.  

The Princeton Review does not rank the law schools from 1 to 165 or name one law school best overall. Instead, the company publishes 12 ranking lists of the top 10 law schools in various categories. Ten lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students attending the law schools. A few lists, such as “Best Career Prospects,” use both student survey and institutional data. The list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data. The Princeton Review explains its methodology for its ranking lists in the book at http://www.princetonreview.com/law-school-rankings/ranking-methodology.
