Vault has named the Top 25 Most Underrated Law Schools, based on 512 votes by legal recruiting professionals (law firm recruiting managers, law firm hiring partners, and corporate counsel):
Recruiters were asked to name law schools that, based on their experience as hiring managers, are underrated. There was no limit to the number of law schools a hiring manager could name as underrated. Recruiters were also asked to provide comments about underrated schools.
Here are the Top 10 Most Underrated Law Schools:
- George Mason
- William & Mary
To determine the national rankings, Vault calculated a score for each school based on the following formula:
- 50% of the score is based on the number of votes a law school received from recruiters in its own region, when compared to the votes received by other law schools in the region
- 50% of the score is based on the number of votes a law school received from recruiters outside its region, when compared to the votes received by law schools nationally
