US News & World Report awarded
UDC-DCSL a top ten ranking for outstanding clinical programs in 2014 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. We offer 8 clinics,
and students are required to provide 700 hours of clinical service to
low-income residents of the District of Columbia. Through the
clinics, in combination with the Summer Fellowship Program and the first year
Community Service Program, DCSL students provide over 100,000 hours of free
legal assistance each year!
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.
