Omaha, NE (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
The Princeton Review has included Creighton University in the 2013 edition of “The Best 168 Law Schools.” The annual compilation features two-page profiles of each school with survey comments from students.
Some 18,000 students rated schools on admissions selectivity, academic experience, career opportunities, professor accessibility and teaching quality. While the survey is primarily a multiple-choice questionnaire, students also had the opportunity to write responses to open-ended questions. In published survey comments about Creighton, students say, “The faculty is committed to making the students better lawyers and they consistently push each student to really reach their potential.”
The law school was previously listed in the review in both 2011 and 2012. In addition, the Princeton Review listed Creighton as one of the “Best 377 Colleges” and “A Best Midwestern College” for 2013.
Creighton has received top rankings and honors from other organizations recently. U.S. News & World Report named the University the No.1 Midwest Regional University in its 2013 edition of “America’s Best Colleges.” U.S. News also called out Creighton as a “Best Value” and an “Up-and-Coming” university as well as for its commitment to student success.
Creighton’s School of Law is the home of the Werner Institute, a center that seeks to advance the field of conflict resolution by focusing on developing the next generation of practitioners and scholars in this growing area. Through Creighton’s Master of Science in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution, offered through the School of Law and the Werner Institute both on campus and online, students learn to approach conflict management and mediation from a broad perspective. The curriculum focuses on techniques for breaking down conflict issues, identifying areas of shared interest and facilitating productive communication. Coursework is interdisciplinary as it draws from business, organizational development, psychology, sociology and communication to prepare students for all aspects of the conflict resolutions process.
As a Jesuit institution, Creighton instills a strong sense of ethics and service for others in students and incorporates these values across the curriculum. Faculty members are internationally recognized leaders in the field, passionate about learning and the intellectual tradition, passing along their expertise to be easily applied to today’s workplace.
