law schools are ranked by US News & World report- try searching their website. A word of caution thoughwhile the rankings have some merit, like all such rankings, they should not be considered an absolute but rather a guide. There are other factors to consider like cost, you will come out of law school with a tremendous amount of debt somewhat restricting your choices of what type of law you will practice, probably the most important factor to consider is where geographically you want to live and work, A highly rated school, typically in the top fourteen, typically called a T14 school on this site and other publications will allow you to go just about anywhere you want. But if you have a specific area in mind you might be better off going to a good school outside the T14 that has a good reputation in that region(try talking to some local attorneys and look at the credentials of judges, and attorneys of local law firms, you'll probably be able to figure out what these schools are. The advantages of going with this type of regional school are many: generally a little easier to get into, slightly less expensive, a strong alumni network in the area that will be key to getting a job once you graduate. Good luck to you, law school is a wonderful adventure.

I second mtbrider's response.  "Best" is relative.  It all depends on what you are looking for.
