Law School Rankings
« on: April 04, 2011, 12:26:55 PM »
Does anyone know where I can find Law School rankings by subject/practice areas?  I have reviewed US News Report's, but am looking for a additional subjects/practice areas.

Most people will probably tell you specialty rankings aren't worth that much. If you're choosing between two schools in very similar circumstances and one is better known for your interest, then go for it. For example, USC is known for its entertainment law program. On the other hand, you might not even get to participate in any of the special clinics or programs that your school advertises. Most clinics and journals have a competitive application process.
