USF Ranked High by Super Lawyers

November 20, 2009

The USF School of Law received high rankings from Super Lawyers magazine in recognition of alumni professional achievement.

The law school ranked third in the list of top 10 law schools that produced Northern California Super Lawyers in 2009. USF also placed 62 out of 180 law schools in Super Lawyers' first annual ranking of U.S. law schools.

"We are a law school that prides itself on great scholars, caring and gifted teachers, and alumni that make a difference," Dean Jeffrey Brand said. "Super Lawyers' rankings are another indication that we are succeeding in educating skilled lawyers respected by their peers and recognized for the good work they do."

The 2010 Super Lawyers U.S. Law School Rankings were determined by the number of graduates selected for inclusion in state or regional Super Lawyers in 2009. Lawyers are selected for state and regional lists by evaluating professional achievement indicators, including verdicts, transactions, pro bono work, peer evaluation, scholarly lectures and writings, ethics, state specialist certification, and awards.

Super Lawyers, founded in 1991, is published by Law & Politics. To view USF School of Law Super Lawyers, click here.
