Wayne Law continues its rise in U.S. News & World Report rankings

Wayne State University Law School has jumped 17 spots in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law School rankings over the last three years — to No. 83 in the country, a historic best this year, and the second-highest ranked law school in Michigan. Wayne Law also ranks highly in several specific categories, including No. 23 in the category of part-time law programs, the best in the state.

Wayne Law is Detroit’s only public law school. It ranks No. 22 nationally for law schools with the lowest debt-to-starting-income ratio according to Spivey Consulting’s analysis of data compiled by Law School Transparency. The National Jurist and preLaw magazines ranked Wayne Law a Best Value Law School for the last six years.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings for law schools are based on a weighted average of 12 measures of quality, with peer assessment and placement success receiving the most weight. Other areas of analysis include median LSAT scores and incoming 1L undergraduate cumulative GPAs, acceptance rate, and reputational assessments by practicing lawyers and judges. Specialty rankings are determined based on peer assessments by law school faculty who teach in each area.
