NEW YORK and WASHINGTON, Wednesday July 20, 2016. New York University School of Law, Columbia Law School, Harvard Law School, and Southern Methodist University School of Law rank highest overall on Law Street’s top specialty program lists: Immigration Law & Real Estate Law.
In Law Street’s third year of researching and ranking the top specialty law programs across the United States, the Law Street Specialty Rankings team compiled lists of the top law schools based on specialty programs. With law school applications and enrollment down, the value of a traditional legal education with its current price tag is the subject of continual debate. Law Street Specialty Rankings blend the quantitative and qualitative in a way that accurately highlights the top law schools around the country.
“Law Street’s speciality rankings are innovative and integral for helping prospective law students find the law school that matches exactly what they are looking for,” said John A. Jenkins, Founder and CEO of Law Street Media. “Law Street wants to bring attention to the law schools that are breaking the mold and evolving legal education. This year we wanted to continue to lead the way in highlighting programs that many other rankings, such as U.S. News and World Report, overlook or under-value.”
