Columbia Law School reaches the 1st place, a position that had been previously held by the University of Pennsylvania for the last 2 years. It is interesting to see that Yale University, which is ranked N°1 by US News & World Report, is only noted at the 13th position. Perhaps that’s because many Yale graduates are busy clerking it up for federal judges after graduation. As excpected, tuitions fees are very high in the top 50. Annual tuition in the first 9 law schools exceeds $50,000. The less expensive one is Brigham Young University (41st place), where one year of law school learning costs less than $11,000!
