MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA—West Virginia University College of Law is among just 20 law schools nationally to receive a Best Value grade of A- from The National Jurist/preLaw Magazine.
The magazines recognize Best Value Law Schools as those that provide students with “excellent chances of passing the bar and getting a legal job without taking on a ton of debt.”
“We appreciate the recognition of our efforts and results,” said Gregory W. Bowman, dean of the College of Law. “The faculty, staff and administration work hard to deliver the best possible legal education while keeping expenses for our students as low as possible.”
Ten months after graduation, the WVU Law Class of 2014 had an employment rate of 77.5% for full-time, long-term Bar Passage Required and J.D. Advantage jobs. The national average is 71.1%.
WVU Law also awards more than $2.3 million a year in scholarships and grants to help keep student indebtedness to approximately $24,000 lower than the national average.
