The UT College of Law is the eighth most efficient law school in the nation, according to a new ranking by U.S. News and World Report.

The new ranking compares its list of U.S. News “Best Law Schools 2014” in per student expenditures, such as faculty and staff salaries, library services, and financial aid.

“The idea of a ranking that measures how well a law school delivers a quality education while spending relatively less to achieve that quality is especially important in today’s legal market,” said Doug Blaze, dean of the UT College of Law. “We’ve always known that UT Law is a good value for the money, and that we work to be good stewards of the financial resources available to us. Having that commitment recognized by U.S. News as being among the top ten in the country drives homes the value and strength of a UT Law education.”

UT College of Law ranked thirty-second among America’s public universities and sixty-first among all public and private law programs in the “Best Law Schools 2014” list, and its specialty in clinical training is seventh among public universities and seventeenth among all universities.

Only schools that were numerically ranked in the top 100 in the “Best Law Schools 2014” rankings were included in this analysis. Visit the U.S. News website for the full list.
