BU Law Ranks in Top 25 for Graduating Leading Lawyers and Judges
Having published six guides to the nation’s leading lawyers and judges (called “the Lawdragon 500”), Lawdragon Magazine thought it had a unique perspective to add to the debate about which law schools are the best. This year, Lawdragon published its "Top Law School" list, based on where leading lawyers and judges went to school. BU Law graduates are well represented among the leading lawyers and judges in the nation, with BU Law placing #21 on this list of top schools.
"Lawdragon 500" lawyers comprise less than one-tenth of one percent of all the attorneys in the United States. The magazine chooses lawyers through online balloting and independent research, including interviews with thousands of professionals. More than 15,000 attorneys were nominated for the most recent listing. The Lawdragon 500 has included academics, private attorneys, prosecutors, judges and members of the U.S. Supreme Court.
