Washburn Law Featured in The Princeton Review Best 169 Law Schools: 2014 Edition

Washburn University School of Law is one of the nation’s most outstanding law schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review (www.PrincetonReview.com). The company features our school in the new 2014 edition of its book, “The Best 169 Law Schools” (Random House/Princeton Review, October 8, 2013, $22.99).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We recommend Washburn Law as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a law school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools, who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book.” The Princeton Review’s survey asks law students about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.

“The Best 169 Law Schools: 2014 Edition” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, and admissions. In the profile on Washburn Law, The Princeton Review quotes students attending Washburn Law. Among the student comments: “Every professor has practical experience from all over the country and many of which are still highly regarded in their respected fields,” and “I love that the curriculum is taught in a way that you can see the application of the material to real life work experience.”

The school profiles in “The Best 169 Law Schools” have rating scores in five categories that The Princeton Review tallies based on institutional data it collected during the 2012-13 academic year and/or its student survey for the book. The ratings are scores on a scale of 60 to 99. Rating categories are: Academic Experience, Admissions Selectivity, Career, Professors Interesting and Professors Accessible. Among the ratings in the Washburn Law profile is a score of 94 for Professors Accessible rating. The Princeton Review explains the basis for each rating score in the book and on its website at www.princetonreview.com/law-school-rankings/ratings.
