The National Law Journal & Legal Times recently named the Howard University School of Law among the nation’s best at producing new attorneys at prominent law firms.
According to a release, the top 50 ‘go-to’ law schools were identified based upon the percentage of graduates employed as first-year associates at more than 250 firms in the NLJ database. HU officials call the accolade a sign of Howard’s brand power in the industrial marketplace.
“These rankings are a source of pride,” said Okianer Christian Dark, Interim Dean of the School of Law. “Students perform exceptionally well while at Howard Law School. Our students know they are highly sought after and that encourages them to excel even more.”
Howard is the only historically Black university ranked among the top 50.
