Boyd School of Law Ranked 53 on Law Schools List Based on LSATs, Employment and Citations

Alfred Brophy, the Judge John J. Parker Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - School of Law, on June 17 published a paper titled Ranking Law Schools with Lsats, Employment Outcomes, and Law Review Citations.

In the paper, the William S. Boyd School of Law is tied for the No. 53 spot.

The paper's abstract reads, "... this paper looks to three variables. They are median LSAT score of entering students, which seeks to capture the quality of the student body; the percentage of the graduating students who are employed at 9 months following graduation at full-time, JD required jobs; and the number of citations to each school’s main law review. This paper rank orders each of those variables, then averages those ranks to obtain a new ranking; then it compares those new rankings to the U.S. News & World Report rankings."
