A new survey from the U.S. News & World Report ranks the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii in the top five best bargains in the United States, according to a press release from the school. The survey is based on loans students take out to finance law school.

Richardson came in at number five on a list of top 10 schools. Graduates of Richardson also carry the 10th lowest level of debt according to a U.S. News Short List.


The average debt carried by the class of 2013 from Richardson came in at $70,263, which is $40,000 less than the national average for 2013 law graduates.

The dean of the school, Avi Soifer, said, “Our founding mission was to provide the opportunity for an excellent legal education and training in leadership for those who otherwise might not have been able to attend law school.  We are working hard to realize the dream shared by Chief Justice Richardson and his allies when they fought to start this Law School 40 years ago.”

Earlier in 2014, Richardson was ranked as one of the top tier law firms in the country by U.S. News. The law school has received honors from Prelaw Magazine, the National Jurist Magazine, the Princeton Review and many other publications.
