Emory Law Ranks No. 22 in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Emory Law again ranks No. 22 in U.S. News & World Report's 2009 edition of “America's Best Graduate Schools.” “We’re proud of both our program and our faculty,” said David F. Partlett, dean of Emory Law. “This past year, we’ve focused on building Emory’s foundational strengths in law and religion as well as international and comparative law.”

Partlett said Emory Law also has expanded this year into new curricular areas through the creation of new programs like the school’s Center for Transactional Law and Practice.

“We strive to provide an outstanding community in which our students can learn and thrive and then go on to deeply satisfying careers,” he said.

Emory Law also was cited among a group of the nation's most diverse law schools.

U.S. News first published a reputation-only graduate school ranking in 1987. The annual America's Best Graduate Schools report began in 1990.
