The latest U.S. News & World Report law school rankings were released this week, and we are delighted to be ranked in the nation’s top tier at 48th best. In addition, and perhaps more revealing about the quality of education we provide, several of our substantive programs are ranked among the nation’s best. Our environmental law program is ranked 17th best, our tax law program is 28th best, our contracts/commercial law program is 36th best, our constitutional law program is 39th best, our criminal law program is 43rd best, our international law program is 45th best, and our business/corporate law program is 47th best. These programmatic rankings reflect the strength of our nationally recognized faculty and the breadth of our curriculum. The rankings reinforce what we have always known: if you want to get a well-rounded legal education at one of the best law schools in the nation, you should study at FSU Law. Combined with the fact that we have the nation’s second best student quality of life, and we are rated as the eighth best value law school in the nation, it is no surprise that FSU Law is at the top of many prospective students’ lists when considering law schools.
