It’s Been a Good Week for UH Law School


Two pieces of good news for the University of Hawaiis William S. Richardson School of Law this week:

For one, the school rose 26 points in its U.S. News & World Report ranking, according to a press release. The 2014 report was released yesterday.

Now, Richardson ranks among the top-tier schools in the country, placing 80th among the nation’s 144 best law schools. Last year, it ranked 106th. 

U.S. News bases its rankings on various metrics, including student-faculty ratios, employment at graduation, bar passage rate and LSAT scores.

Second, Richardson’s Trademark Moot Court team this week won the Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition’s western regional phase. The victory marks the first win for UH at the regional round, according to a press release.

The team will compete against seven other regional teams starting March 16.
