March 29, 2022 - Multiple University of Houston Law Center specialty programs are among the best in the country, according to results of a new U.S. News & World Report annual survey released today. UH Law’s three national top 10 programs are: Intellectual Property and Information Law which ranks No. 6, Health Law which ranks No. 7 and its part-time program which comes in at number 9.

For the second consecutive year, a total of eight UHLC specialty programs are among the Top 50 in the country. The Law Center improved its overall ranking to No. 58, up 2 spots from a tie for No. 60 last year.

“I am pleased that UH Law Center has three top ten specialty rankings and 8 specialty rankings in the top fifty as well as moved up two points to 58 in the overall rankings. We all know that UHLC is an excellent law school. It is nice to know that this is confirmed by US News & World Report,” said Dean Leonard M. Baynes.

Other top 50 UHLC rankings include:

  • No. 21 in Environmental Law
  • No. 31 in Trial Advocacy (an 11-point increase from 2021)
  • No. 44 in Business Corporate Law (an eight-point increase from 2021)
  • No. 47 in Dispute Resolution (a five-point increase from 2021)
  • No. 49 in Tax Law (a four-point increase from 2021)

In a statement by U.S. News, the rankings "evaluate institutions on their successful placement of graduates, their faculty resources, the academic achievements of entering students, and opinions by law schools, lawyers and judges on overall program quality."
