The Recorder reports UCLA Law Becomes the First Non-T14 School to Dump the US News Rankings
- The University of California, Los Angeles School of Law is the first non-T14 law school—though just barely since UCLA Law is ranked No. 15—to announce it will no longer participate in the U.S. News & World Report education rankings.
- U.S. News released a statement Thursday, saying, “U.S. News & World Report will continue to rank all fully accredited law schools, regardless of whether schools agree to submit their data.
- Yale Law School was the first to announce it would pull out of the U.S. News rankings, calling them “profoundly flawed.” Harvard Law School followed with its own announcement hours later. Then, Thursday afternoon, the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law joined them.
