At its simplest, our goal is to improve law school choice by increasing the amount of meaningful information available and giving it to you in a searchable format.
Lawdragon Campus is founded on the principle that there is no one best law school in the United States, but there is one that’s best for each prospective candidate – if, in fact, law school is the right choice. We hope this replaces the one-size-fits-all mentality of rankings that encourages students to go to the “top-ranked” school they get into.
Here you can search for schools by where you want to attend school or by where you want to work, along with other filters, such as total costs of tuition and expenses, school accreditation status or availability of part-time programs.
You can compare and sort schools by these filters as well as by national and state employment rates, curriculum strengths and other data to assess the best value for your academic and professional interests.
This site also provides daily news in legal education; features on students, law school staff and prominent alumni; financial advice, and ongoing results from the Lawdragon Law School Survey on school satisfaction.
