The Kline Law community is very pleased by the increased ranking. “The ranking is only a representation of the work being done every day at Kline Law,” said Dean Dan Filler. “We are recruiting a stronger class of students every year, and these students are gaining deep practice experience and changing clients’ lives through our high-intensity co-op externships, nationally ranked clinics and mandatory pro bono experience.”
In addition to the overall rankings, the law school’s peer reputation score and reputation among lawyers and judges rose. “I’m particularly pleased that we are being recognized among law faculties and employers for our strong program and excellent faculty,” stated Filler. “Our small faculty is making an outsized impact on some of the biggest legal debates going on today, from health care policy to race discrimination in the workplace.”
Since its founding in 2006, the Kline School of Law has committed to providing students with all they need to have a competitive edge when entering the workforce, including exceptional mentorship from faculty and real-world experience through professional practice prior to graduation. “I know the entire Kline community takes great pride in seeing a young school come into its own,” said Filler.
