Pitt Law Named a 2014 Best Value Law School

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law has been ranked by The National Jurist as one of the Best Value Law Schools.

Pitt Law was one of only 53 law schools out of over 200 nationally (and one of only three in Pennsylvania) to be ranked as a Best Value.  The National Jurist took into account multiple factors, with success in job placement weighted most heavily at 35%, followed by tuition (25%), average indebtedness (15%), bar passage rates (15%), and cost of living (10%). 

“The University of Pittsburgh School of Law continues to offer an excellent and affordable legal education,” said University of Pittsburgh Law School Dean William M. Carter, Jr. “Our top priority is delivering an accessible and world-class legal education that leads to our graduates’ personal and professional success, so we are gratified at this recognition of the value Pitt Law provides.”
