US News & World Report awarded UDC-DCSL a top ten ranking for outstanding clinical programs in 2012 of 188 ABA accredited law schools analyzed. In its annual Best Law Schools analysis, US News & World Report ranked UDC-DCSL's clinical program well above numerous well-heeled and prestigious law schools, including Harvard and Columbia. 

Clinics are the signature focus of UDC-DCSL's legal education. UDC-DCSL offers 8 clinics. Students are required to provide 700 hours of clinical service to low-income residents of the District of Columbia plus a 40 hour first-year community service requirement.

The School of Law faculty and administration were pleased with the recognition. Considering the high ranking for clinical quality Dean Shelley Broderick said, "Keep your eye on this dial as UDC continues to surge to the top of the clinical rankings!"

Tuition at UDC-DCSL remains the least expensive of the top ten clinical law schools in keeping with its mission to educate students for careers in public interest, public service and public policy law. Keeping tuition affordable allows UDC-DCSL students to enter those practice areas unburdened by crushing student loans.
