June 28, 2021 - The University of Houston Law Center placed in the top 50 law schools in the nation in rankings published by the legal website Above the Law last Friday. The Law Center came in at No. 47.
According to Above the Law, the rankings' methodology prioritizes employment outcomes most of all. Other factors include the quality of jobs, education costs, a school's ability to place students on a career path that enables them to eliminate debts, full-time and long-term jobs that require bar passage and debt-per-job ratio – “a comparison between the indebtedness of a school’s graduates to the number of actual legal jobs” they are hired for, and Supreme Court clerkships and federal judgeships.
