I can't find the Nat'l Jurist rankings, sorry, but here are some highlights from Brennan's rankings....
Brennan's Composite Index is an alternative ranking service produced by former Michigan Supreme Court Judge Thomas E. Brennan. Judge Brennan ranks his top 20 schools according to a number of categories. We include only the composite list here. This list is rather controversial but also widely discussed. IT can be found at www.ilrg.com/rankings
BUSL -- #4 on the Institutional Index
The Institutional Index is primarily a measure of a law school's student enrollment in a given year and its annualized growth in enrollment, degrees awarded, credit hours required for graduation, and the number of deans and administrators and their ratio to students. The law school's age is also a factor. If a prospective law student is most interested in an institution's size, the categories which define the Institutional Index, may be most helpful.
BUSL -- #3 on the Faculty Index
The Faculty Index is a measure of the number of faculty and the ratio between faculty numbers and student enrollment. The full-time equivalent student to full-time teacher category represents the traditional student-teacher ratio, the principal factor used by academic accreditation agencies to measure the quality of a school. The smaller the ratio, conventional wisdom declares, the more likely that teaching takes place in smaller class sections and that students will have a greater chance of access to faculty.
