Princeton Review Names Hamline Law a Top Law School


The Hamline School of Law has been named one of The Princeton Review’s Best Law Schools for 2014. The education services company used surveys from more than 18,000 students to narrow their list of top law schools to 169. Rating categories included: Academic experience, admission selectivity, career prospects, and interesting and accessible professors. 

According to a press release from The Princeton Review, the company chooses schools based on high regard for academic programs, reviews of institutional data, and student surveys. According to one Hamline Law student surveyed, Hamline faculty are “outstanding educators who are passionate about their work,” and they “provide a diverse range of expertise and experiences.” According to another student, professors are “highly accessible outside of the classroom.” 

Other students cited Career Services and the alumni network as strengths of the law school stating that Career Services is “incredibly helpful, open, and dedicated to helping students find jobs, internships, and develop skills of professionalism.” The strength of the alumni network was also praised by students, “Hamline alumni have been very helpful in connecting me with other attorneys and notifying me when they hear of opportunities that [they] know I am interested in.” You can read more about Hamline School of Law’s ranking on The Princeton Review website
