The UC Davis School of Law is No. 36 in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings of law schools nationwide.
That was up two spots from the previous rankings.
In ranked subsets, the UCD law school was 22nd in the nation based on survey responses from law school deans and faculty, 24th in the assessment by participating lawyers and judges and 26th in the “Most Diverse Law Schools” rankings.
“While it is important not to place too much emphasis on rankings, the latest U.S. News & World Report assessment serves as a welcome recognition of the excellence and diversity that we see on a daily basis at UC Davis School of Law,” said Kevin Johnson, school dean.
The University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law ranked 146th overall, at the bottom of all listed rankings. McGeorge officials said the school’s ranking was impacted by U.S. News & World Report’s high emphasis on placing graduates into full-time positions.
The top-ranked schools in the nation were Yale, Harvard and Stanford, respectively.
