Top Ten Lists of Law Schools Created Based on U.S. News Rankings

Derek Muller is a professor of law at Pepperdine. He is also a colleague of the TaxProf Blog founder and fellow Pepperdine law professor Paul L. Caron. Muller decided to sift through the data released by U.S. News in the 2014 U.S. News Law School Rankings to create a bunch of top 10 lists of law schools in various categories. The lists were published at the TaxProf Blog. He came out with two days worth of top ten lists and from the first day, we found these two lists to be very interesting. The two lists are Giving Up (unemployed, not seeking) and More Debt, Please (graduates pursuing a graduate degree full-time).

1. Santa Clara University 15.9%
2. Willamette University 11.6%
3. University of the District of Columbia 11.5%
