National Jurist Names Top 60 Law Schools for Practical Training
The National Jurist has named its top 60 law schools that offer practical training. The magazine will rank the top 21 schools and list the remaining 39 in upcoming issues. Editor-In-Chief Jack Crittenden was quoted saying, "This is the first effort to try to quantify which schools are delivering on their promises to make legal education more experiential," and, "it is great to see so many schools making improvements."
The rankings were determined by the number of clinic positions per enrollment, the number of field placements or externships per enrollment, the number of simulation courses per enrollment, and additional information about practical training offerings.
A number of Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers Consortium schools were included in the list:
- Golden Gate University
- Loyola University Chicago
- Northeastern University
- Southwestern Law School
- University of Denver
- University of Maryland
- University of New Hampshire
- University of St. Thomas
- Washington and Lee University
