U.S. News & World Report recently released its annual rankings of the best graduate programs at U.S universities. This year, the magazine ranked 194 accredited law schools in the United States.
Of the six law schools at historically Black universities, Howard University ranked the highest. Howard was rated as the 126th best law school among the 194 accredited schools.
U.S. News choose not to assign numerical rankings to law schools that did not finish in the top 145 places. The other five law schools at historically Black universities all fell in this range of the 146th to 194th best law schools. These law schools are at Florida A&M University, Texas Southern University, North Carolina Central University, Southern University, and the University of the District of Columbia.
