June 16, 2014 - The National Jurist magazine and preLaw magazine has named The University of Houston Law Center a 'Best Value' in its annual survey. The magazines recognized 53 institutions as 'Best Value' schools.
“When law school enrollment began to drop a few years ago, some schools began to offer more scholarships,” said Jack Crittenden, Editor In Chief of The National Jurist. “We are now starting to see the beginning of that impact on debt. Also, employment numbers are improving, even if slightly.”
The publication looks at academic and financial variables including tuition, student debt accumulation, employment success, bar passage rate, and cost of living to determine its 'Best Value' recognition, with ‘employment success’ given the greatest weight.
The UH Law Center earned an A- in the current “Best Value” survey and has been recognized annually by the National Jurist since 2011. A complete list with grades for the 53 schools will appear in the Back to School issue of preLaw magazine and the September issue of The National Jurist.
