University of Wisconsin Law School moves up to 28th in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

The University of Wisconsin Law School climbed to 28th in the annual US News ranking of law schools, released April 15.  (Last year, the Law School had ranked 35th.)  This places the UW 10th among the nation’s public law schools.

Commenting on the rankings, Law School Dean Kenneth B. Davis, Jr. cautioned against placing too much reliance on year-to-year changes.  “Nonetheless,” he added, “our current ‘Preeminent and Public’ Initiative is already producing substantial improvement in many of the accepted indicators of law school quality.  It is gratifying to see this improvement reflected in our US News ranking.”

Davis added that he is particularly pleased that one area of improvement was the School’s reputation among lawyers and judges.  “Hopefully,” he said, “this will give our students a bit of an added advantage as they continue to cope with the toughest employment market that any of us has ever experienced.”
