RALEIGH, N.C. – Campbell Law School has been named to a list of the top 22 private law schools in the country for the best value by The National Jurist. In selecting institutions for inclusion, the publication considered a number of academic and financial variables, including price of tuition, student debt accumulation, employment success, bar passage, and cost of living figures. The complete list is available via The National Jurist.
“The National Jurist is publicly expressing a sentiment that we’ve known for quite some time,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “Campbell Law is a special place where our students learn, excel, and are positioned to go out and do great things after walking across the stage at graduation and passing the bar exam. We are excited to be included on this list alongside many other fine institutions.”
This past February, Campbell Law scored high marks from The National Jurist in both bar passage and employment. Campbell Law was one of just 22 institutions nationally to receive a grade of “A-“ or better in both the bar passage and employment categories in the publication’s ranking of law schools. In September 2013, The National Jurist ranked Campbell Law’s externship program 27th nationally.
