Oct. 12, 2011 – The University of Houston Law Center is one of the nation's most outstanding law schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2012 edition of its book, "The Best 167 Law Schools.”
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend the University of Houston Law School 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. We chose the 167 law 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."
"The Best 167 Law Schools: 2012 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on the University of Houston Law Center, the Princeton Review editors say “those looking for great value relative to cost in their education will be extremely satisfied.” They quote from students attending the Law Center who say they receive a “high-value education for a low cost in a great legal market.”
The Princeton Review has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 law schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 18,000 students attending the 167 law schools profiled in the book. Conducted during the 2010-11, 2009-10, and 2008-09 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online.
