The University of Tennessee College of Law is one of the nation’s outstanding law schools, according to the Princeton Review’s annual guide to law schools, “The Best 173 Law Schools: 2016 Edition.”

In the guide, the Princeton Review profiles UT Law and other top law schools with information and ratings about academic programs, student life, admissions, selectivity, and career placement services. The publication recognizes UT Law’s “great education at an affordable price.”

“Students find the program ‘mentally stimulating’ and leave confident in their ‘abilities to practice law after graduation.’ The university boasts ‘small class sizes,’ which make ‘learning more personable and focused,’” the Review states about UT Law. “Students find the Career Center ‘very helpful.’ ‘The Career Center actually helps you find a job (unlike many schools’ career centers),’ notes one student.”

Additionally, the Review also highlights UT Law’s “top notch” faculty and staff, “very accessible and open” administration, and “great sense of community.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the law schools in the book from one to 173, or name one law school best overall. Instead, the book has eleven ranking lists of the top ten law schools in various categories. This year’s rankings were based on 19,700 responses from students at the 173 law schools, who were asked questions about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life, as well as about themselves and their career plans.
