The University of Georgia School of Law has been voted the best in the state by readers of the Daily Report, Georgia’s legal newspaper.
“We are grateful to our graduates and friends for recognizing our longstanding commitment to preparing the next generation of legal leaders and ensuring a strong return on investment for our three degrees,” said Peter B. “Bo” Rutledge, dean of the law school.
The law school offers the Juris Doctor, the Master of Laws and the Master in the Study of Law. Its faculty includes nationally and internationally renowned scholars, and its more than 10,000 living graduates are leading figures in law, business and public service throughout the world.
“Connecting students to these thought leaders and opportunities to serve state and society is central to the school’s mission,” Rutledge said.
The School of Law has the highest state bar passage rate among Georgia law schools for first-time test takers for the past four years and was ranked the No. 2 Best Value Law School by National Jurist in fall 2017.
