The best 168 law schools bookTulsa, OK, Oct 9, 2012 – The University of Tulsa College of Law is one of the nation's most outstanding law schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review ( The Company features the school in the new 2013 edition of its book, "The Best 168 Law Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review, October 9, 2012).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend TU College of Law as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a law school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book." The Princeton Review's survey asks law students about their schools’ academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.

Dean Janet Levit’s strategic goals of raising standards, growing faculty reputation and preparing students to enter an ever-changing job market have resulted in the positive national attention echoed in The Princeton Review's "The Best 168 Law Schools.”

The TU College of Law provides an academically rigorous, yet congenial atmosphere where students become practice-ready through participation in law journals, award-winning moot court teams, an on-campus clinic, and pro bono program.

"The Best 168 Law Schools: 2013 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on TU College of Law, the Princeton Review quote from students attending TU College of Law say that “the integration of the Tulsa legal community with the law school is incredible” and that “if you want a practical legal education in a happy environment, TU is certainly your best option."
