The LSU Law Center jumped 12 spots in a national ranking of law schools in the country, according to a report released Wednesday.
The now-82nd ranked LSU Law Center is one of 55 public law schools ranked in the U.S. News and World Report's top 100.
Schools were judged on quality assessment, selectivity, bar exam passage rates, and faculty resources.
"We are particularly gratified that we have been able to achieve so much under difficult financial circumstances," said Interim Dean William R. Corbett. "The successes of the Law Center are the product of the hard work and devotion of our Law Center community—our students, faculty, staff and alumni."
Corbett says the mission to serve its students and alumni is well reflected in the U.S. News and World Report ranking.
