San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Stanford University Law School is the best law school in the U.S., according to a new ranking published by http://TippingTheScales.com. Among the top U.S. law schools, Stanford is followed by Yale University, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University.
The new ranking--based on key metrics reported by the nation’s law schools--is the first in what will be an annual assessment of legal education by a new website for law school applicants launched by C-Change Media, publisher of http://PoetsandQuants.com, the highly popular site for applicants to graduate business school, and http://PoetsandQuantsforExecs.com.
“Our goal with TippingTheScales is to make it the must-read destination for anyone interested in a law school education, for J.D. students, and for newly minted lawyers,” says John A. Byrne, editor-in-chief of TippingTheScales. “It will follow the successful formula of smart, analytical, and irreverent content we’ve developed for PoetsandQuants, which now gets well over one million hits monthly.”
Among the many articles for the debut of TippingTheScales is an extensive interview with Penn Law School Dean Michael Fitts, a commentary on The Best Case for Law School written by StratusPrep founder Shawn O’Connor, a feature on the nation’s most selective law schools, and The Life of A Lawyer: In Their Own Words by Jeremy Shinewald, author of The Complete Start-To-Finish Law School Admissions Guide. The new site includes more than 150 profiles of the nation’s top law schools as a result of a partnership with Princeton Review.
The http://TippingTheScales.com ranking of the top 50 law schools in America zeroes in on two key dimensions of the J.D. experience: the quality of the students getting into a law school and the success of the graduates going out. “Bottom line is, these metrics are simple to understand and they get at what really counts in a law school education,” explains Byrne. “Applicants want to know that their classmates will be as good as they are, that a school is highly selective in crafting its classes, and that at the end of the experience they will have a job and sizable compensation.”
