TALLAHASSEE — preLaw magazine has ranked Florida State University College of Law the eighth best value law school in the nation. The ranking, which is published in preLaw’s fall 2022 issue, weighs important student outcomes—bar passage and employment rates—against tuition, cost of living, and average indebtedness. According to preLaw, the rankings are “designed to recognize schools whose graduates have excellent chances of passing the bar and getting a legal job without taking on a ton of debt.” The national ranking reflects the strong employment and bar passage results of recent Florida State law graduates. 

“We are thrilled to be ranked the nation’s eighth best value law school, especially because employment rate is the highest weighted factor in calculating this ranking,” said Dean Erin O’Connor. “Preparing our students for successful legal careers is our top priority.”
