RALEIGH - Campbell Law School moved into the top tier for law schools and collected its highest ever ranking as released by U.S. News & World Report in March.
The ranking is included as a part of the publication’s Best Graduate Schools 2014 guidebook, published in April.
“This is a proud day for Campbell Law and Campbell University,” said Campbell Law Interim Dean Keith Faulkner. “This ranking is further proof of the continued upward trajectory of the law school, as well as the strong foundation that has been built over time by countless faculty, staff, students and graduates since our founding in 1976.”
Previously unranked, Campbell is listed as 126th out of the 149 ranked schools.
Campbell Law ranked high in several metrics comprising overall rankings including student/faculty ratio, the school’s bar passage rate, and the number of graduates employed nine months after graduation with a full-time job lasting at least a year for which bar passage was required or a J.D. degree was an advantage.
Of the seven law schools in North Carolina, Campbell Law stands as one of four institutions ranked inside the top tier. The other three include Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill and Wake Forest.
