We are all proud that Maurer recently jumped up to number 23 in the U.S. News & World Report Rankings. Many people consider these rankings to be the most important in the legal education world, but that doesn’t mean that your criteria for a law school matches perfectly with your own requirements. For that personal touch, or just to make sure that you understand the strength and weaknesses of ranking systems in general, you might want to take a look at The Ranking Game.
The Ranking Game was created several years ago by our own Prof. Stake, and it allows you to rank law schools based on criteria that you select. Not only can you choose to give a great deal of weight to the size of the law library, but you can also choose to make the number of Tibetan restaurants within 400 meters part of your criteria. Go play around a little!
