Vault conducted research on the most underrated law schools. According to their results released in 2007, the top 5 most underrated schools are:

1. Emory
2. Fordham
3. Howard
4. Chicago-Kent
5. Oregon

Analysis: Emory, being #22 already is essentially a T14 school, but US News obviously switches our numbers with Georgetown in order to keep us off the top.

If it hasn't been listed already in the 43+ earlier pages of posts, I would nominate Campbell University.  The last few years the school has had a bar passage rate in North Carolina of darn-close to 100%; the statistics I have list it higher than Duke.  It's hard to argue with a statistic like that; that's why you go to law school.

  The school I want is the one that gets: "Illiterate, unskilled dolts who all seem to wind up with plum jobs and outrageous salaries for no apparent reason."
