Boyd School of Law Ranks 22 on List of Best Law School Facilities

The Boyd School of Law ranked 22 in the nation on a list of best law school facilities. The list appeared in the November issue of The National Jurist magazine.

The article reads, "The National Jurist did an exhaustive review of the nation's 200-plus law schools to identify the very best buildings. We started by looking at numerous sources, including our own staff visits and The Princeton Review's 2014 edition of 'The Best 169 Law Schools.' We then gathered objective data from those schools on square footage of their buildings (libraries included), library hours and the number of seats in their libraries.

"We also wanted to know if they had a fitness center on the grounds or how far away one was. (Got to work off that stress.) Did they have dining? If so, where? What about lockers and study carrels? Finally, we judged the schools based on aesthetics," the article reads.

The Boyd School of law offers 586 square feet per student, 1.10 seats in the library per student, dining options, and lockers.
