The January 2011 issue of the National Jurist, a magazine for law students, ranked Brooklyn Law School second in New York State for public service law and 17th in the country. It was among 18 schools that received an “A” grade, out of a total of 96 schools. The National Jurist editors compiled and analyzed data that reflected three main criteria: schools must have one of more public interest clinics; have one or more faculty members who oversee public interest; and have a loan repayment assistance program. The schools were then weighted by cost of education, placement and curriculum. More ranking information can be found online. Last year, Brooklyn Law School was chosen as one of four schools that the National Jurist selected to receive their “public service honor roll” award.
