Here they come (with some controversy)

It's nearing that time of year again when U.S. News and World Report release their annual graduate school rankings. According to Robert Morse, the rankings will be published online on April 23, 2009--roughly a month later than last year's. The law school rankings "will be getting an upgrade" as U.S. News will publish its "first-ever ranking of part-time J.D. law programs."

I also came across an interesting article from last year providing a comprehensive summary of a debate among various legal blogs on the other changes implemented by U.S. News in the ranking methodology employed for this year's edition.

  2. Yeah, the part time rankings are useless. Everyone knows GT and GW are the best part-time programs out there. The rest are really indistinguishable.

  4. They don't 4.52, but Fordham does and I think Fordham PT will be ranked above Suffolk PT. Maybe even > GW.

  5. GW PT is actually a better program than GT PT is. At GW, you get the same professors as the FT students
