Oregon Law: Continues to Top Programmatic Rankings
University of Oregon School of Law is home to three nationally-ranked programs, according to U.S. News & World Report
For the sixth year in row, Oregon Law School boasts three top ten programs in U.S.News & World Report. As part of the state’s flagship university, Oregon Law is one of only three public institutions in the nation having three or more top specialty ranked programs.
Among the very best programs in the nation according to U.S.News & World Report‘s 2014 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” Oregon Law’s Legal Research and Writing (LRW) ranked 5th, Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) ranked 7th, and Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENR) ranked 8th. This is the tenth year the ENR program has appeared in the top ten, the sixth year for both the ADR and LRW programs (LRW rankings began in 2005).
The other two public institutions with three or more U.S.News & World Report top ten ranked programs include University of California-Berkeley, and the University of Maryland.
Oregon Law’s reputational ranking — that is, how academic and legal experts nationwide view the school — makes it the top-ranked school in the state of Oregon and the second in the Pacific Northwest, after the University of Washington.
