MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA— The National Jurist has named West Virginia University College of Law a top 20 Best Value Law School.
“The ranking reinforces the work by faculty and staff to help our students prepare for their futures and start meaningful legal careers,” said Gregory W. Bowman, dean of the College of Law. “Our value is demonstrated by our high employment rate and low student debt.”
The employment rate for the WVU Law Class of 2015 is 80 percent, which is 10 points higher than the national average. The figure is for full-time, long-term Bar Passage Required and J.D. Advantage jobs.
WVU Law also awards more than $2.9 million a year in scholarships and grants to help keep student indebtedness to approximately $25,000 lower than the national average.
The National Jurist’s annual best value rankings will be published in the fall issue of preLaw magazine.
