School of Law moves up in U.S. News & World Report rankings

April 3, 2014 - The Quinnipiac School of Law recently advanced 16 places in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report rankings of ABA-approved law schools. The move keeps Quinnipiac law in the "Top Schools" designation, the top tier of law schools.

The move up in rankings isn't the only bold change the law school has made recently. Last year, long-time Quinnipiac School of Law professor Jennifer Gerarda Brown was named dean of the school. Brown, who also served as director of the school's well-respected Center on Dispute Resolution, is a dynamic leader who is bringing fresh ideas and energy to the School of Law community.

In addition, the school is currently building a state-of-the-art law facility on the University's North Haven Campus. It will feature larger spaces for the school's legal clinic programs; a Dispute Resolution Suite and Mock Trial Practice Room for its highly successful competition teams; special editing studio for Visual Persuasion classes; additional group study spaces; and a student lounge with outdoor terrace.

Joining the University's North Haven graduate community will also foster greater interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships with students and faculty in the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and the graduate programs in the School of Health Sciences, School of Nursing and School of Education as well as the master of social work program.
