“Very few law schools in America offer both an affordable cost of attendance and the wealth of professional and cultural opportunities that come with being in a large metropolitan area,” said Dean Antony Page. “FIU Law’s ability to deliver on both counts speaks to the quality of training our graduates receive.”
The National Jurist’s rankings evaluate employment and bar passage rates against tuition, average student debt, and cost of living “to recognize law schools where graduates have excellent chances of passing the bar and getting a legal job without taking on excessive debt,” according to the publication’s methodology. The Fall 2022 issue, which includes the full 2022 Best Value rankings, is available here.
The FIU Law’s class of 2021’s 10-month employment rate of 95% marked the highest in the College’s history, and its graduates have earned the highest first-time bar exam passage rates in Florida on every July bar exam since 2015.
