UDSL Recognized as a First-Tier Law School by U.S. News

The University of Dayton School of Law's recent success in career placement, enrollment, curricular innovations and national reputation continues its upward movement.

The School of Law currently ranks second among Ohio law schools and 54th among the 202 ABA-accredited law schools in job placement rate and has reached enrollment goals for its last two classes. Curricular innovations include the establishment of learning communities to foster greater student success, and creation of the intellectual property and entrepreneurship clinic.

Two years ago, the School of Law's U.S. News & World Report reputation ranking among judges and lawyers improved 40 places. 

And today, it achieved full-fledged status by entering U.S. News’ first tier of law schools, having moved up 16 places in the national rankings. U.S News’ ranks law schools in two tiers. This is the School of Law’s first top-tier ranking.

"I'm happy for all the members of our community who devote their time and talent to the School of Law. We have the right people doing outstanding work in academic success, admissions, career services and student development, and the ranking is just one reflection of their efforts," School of Law Dean Paul McGreal said. "Our mission to PRACTICExcellence — to educate Practice Ready Attorneys Committed To Inclusive Community and Excellence — continuously challenges everyone at the Law School to aspire to greater things in service of our students, the profession, and our community. Regardless of any single ranking or accomplishment, our commitment to this mission will not waver.

"The feedback from our recent American Bar Association accreditation site visit and this U.S. News recognize the success of our work."
