LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - According to the September issues of National Jurist and preLaw magazines, Texas Tech University's School of Law is ranked 19th in the nation in a Best Value ranking of America's nearly 200 law schools.
The Best Value ranking is based on three factors: the law school's annual tuition costs; bar-passage rates above the state average; and employment rates for graduates exceeding 85% within nine months of graduation.
Of Texas' nine law schools, TTU School of Law was the only one ranked in the top 35.
