College of Law named a “Best Value” law school by PreLaw magazine

For the eighth year in a row, the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law has been named a “Best Value” law school by PreLaw magazine, a publication of The National Jurist.

The newest set of rankings were released on Nov. 6.  The publication gave the College of Law a grade of A- for its exceptional value.

“We are very proud to be named a best value law school.  This is consistent with our fundamental value of providing a world class education without asking students to go into outrageous debt.  Our average student debt load is below the national average, which is indicative of our efforts to keep tuition relatively low while increasing scholarship support for students,” said Elizabeth Kronk Warner, dean of the College of Law.

“By keeping costs lower than many of our peers while maintaining our high standards, we hope to provide students the opportunity to select career opportunities that align with their values rather than what is necessary to pay off debt,” she said.

Rankings are compiled by using a methodology that recognizes law schools whose graduates excel at passing the bar and have strong job prospects upon graduation without taking on a large debt load.
