Chapman Finally Recognized As a Top 100 Law School

leave a comment »

My alma mater has finally broken into the second tier in the US News & World Report law school rankings.  When I graduated just three years ago it was still relegated to the basement of the fourth tier.  Of course, we all knew that, on paper, Chapman was a top-100 law school, but USN&WR gives a bizarre amount of weight to subjective criteria supplied by folks beholden to other schools.  After John Eastman signed on as dean, however, Chapman was able to climb over all 80 or so schools in the third and fourth tiers to stand now as the 93rd ranked school in the nation.  A nice boost to the value of that bit of paper hanging on my wall.  I couldn’t be happier.

Congratulations, and thank you, to former dean Eastman and the wonderful faculty and staff at Chapman!
