USF Featured in The Best 172 Law Schools
October 27, 2010
The University of San Francisco is one of the nation's most outstanding law schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features USF in the 2011 edition of its book The Best 172 Law Schools.
“We are pleased to recommend the USF School of Law to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn a law school degree,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president of publishing at The Princeton Review. “We chose the 172 schools for this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools.”
The Best 172 Law Schools includes a two-page profile of the USF School of Law with information on academics, student life, career placement, and admissions. The Princeton Review editors said “the University of San Francisco is a great place to pursue a traditional legal education while simultaneously getting an introduction to the practical aspects of the legal profession.”
The profile includes quotes from students attending the law school, who noted USF's highly creative professors, Legal Research and Writing program, bar preparation expertise, great research resources, supportive environment, and beautiful campus.
“We appreciate The Princeton Review’s recognition of our academic rigor existing side by side with the best in skills training,” Dean Jeff Brand said. “Moreover, the survey’s recognition of our supportive environment—which we believe is critical to academic excellence—is gratifying.”
