Wayne Law continues its rise in U.S. News & World Report rankings
Wayne State University Law School has jumped 44 spots in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law School rankings over the last six years — to No. 56 in the country, a historic best this year, and again the second-highest ranked law school in Michigan. Wayne Law also ranked No. 16 in part-time law programs, the best in the state and No. 3 in the Midwest.
Wayne Law is Detroit’s only public law school and consistently has the lowest tuition in the state. The National Jurist and preLaw magazines have ranked Wayne Law a Best Value Law School for nine consecutive years.
U.S. News derived each school's overall rank by scoring it on 10 distinct ranking factors including placement success and first-time bar passage, employment outcomes 10 months after graduation, two-year bar passage rates, selectivity, faculty resources and more. These scores were standardized so they were compared with the means and standard deviations among all other ranked schools.
