Northern Illinois University College of Law has again been named, for the fourth year in a row, as one of the top law schools in the nation based on value by National Jurist magazine.
As part of its 2017 Best Value Law Schools study, National Jurist assessed percentage of graduates who pass the bar exam, tuition, cost of living, average indebtedness upon graduation, and employment rate ranked as the most important factor.
NIU College of Law prepares graduates for careers through in-depth core classes and extensive hands-on training in legal clinics, externship placements, and specialized upper-level courses.
NIU Law graduates enter a range of legal and public service careers, and include over 95 alumni who are active or retired judges. In addition to practicing law, many graduates also choose careers as leaders in government and business where the JD degree is a recognized advantage.
A complete list of the Best Value Law Schools appears in the October 2017 print issue of National Jurist magazine.
