The Methodology

The Princeton Review's student survey for this project asked students to rate their law schools on dozens of topics and report their experiences at the schools. The company's administrator survey collected data on everything from admission requirements, academic offerings, and financial aid to facts about graduates' employment.

"Every school we chose for our list of Best Law Schools for 2022 offers outstanding academics," said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review's editor in chief. "We report law school ranking lists in several categories—in lieu of a mega-list, solely based on academics—for one reason: to help applicants identify the law school best for them.

"Our 14 ranking list categories report schools we have found to be exceptional for distinctions beyond academics—from characteristics of their campus culture to their career placement records—all of which law school applicants have told us matter to them.”

The Princeton Review's rankings of Best Law Schools for 2022 are based on data from the company's surveys of 15,000 students attending 168 law schools and of administrators at those schools. The surveys of students were conducted during the 2020-21, 2019–20, and 2018–19 academic years. The 80-question survey (completed at asked students about their schools’ academics, student body, and campus life, and about their career plans. On average, 85 students at each law school were surveyed. The surveys of administrators at the schools were conducted in 2020-21. Information about the methodology for the rankings can be found here
