Super Lawyers Names Law School a Leader in Pro Bono Experience

February 05, 2015

The Kline School of Law is among the nation’s Top 10 law schools for ensuring that students gain pro bono experience, according to Super Lawyers, a rating service of outstanding practitioners.

The law school's 50-hour minimum pro bono service requirement puts it on a footing with peer law schools at  Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania among others, according to Super Lawyers.

The list was published in a feature article, “Top 5 Things to Consider When Selecting a Law School.”

Most Kline School of Law students exceed the 50-hour service requirement.  The Class of 2014 provided more than 14,000 hours of service, an average of 102 hours per graduate.  Their efforts benefited individuals who faced issues including immigration, domestic violence, access to medical resources and wrongful convictions.
