The reputation at UCLA for any program is no different than the overall school's reputation. UCLA is not the best in anything. No firm is going to hire someone from UCLA over Harvard or Yale merely because a magazine ranks it number 1 in a specialty. The only ranking that really counts is the general US news ranking. The average general ranking of the past 5 years is the best way to get a sense of what the school's reputation is like in the market. This goes for all specialty rankings. If BC is the best school by USNews for International Law as many say, then why do Harvard grads keep getting hiring for international law positions? The answer is that the specialty rankings are really just there for magazine sales. I don't mean to come down harsh, but this is just the way it is.
Most publications due to their international programs, but the point was that specialty rankings dont matter anyways. I was using it ironically.
