DePaul Law Named to The Princeton Review List “Best Law Schools for 2023”

DePaul Law is once again an outstanding law school according to The Princeton Review©, which  named the school to its list of Best Law Schools for 2023.

The list features The Princeton Review’s detailed school profiles and ratings, as well as quotes from students attending the schools.  The Princeton Review editors noted that DePaul “makes great uses of its bustling urban location, near major courthouses and law offices, and students laud their ‘access to the Chicago legal community, number of alumni in the judiciary, business and private practice in the Chicagoland area.’” 

"All of the schools that made our list for 2023 deliver exceptional legal education programs,” said The Princeton Review Editor-in-Chief Rob Franek. “We recommend each one as an academically excellent choice for a student considering earning a JD.” 

The Princeton Review editors weigh more than 60 data points in making their annual selections for their annual Best Law Schools lists. The selections for the 2023 list took into account data from surveys the company conducted in 2021-2022 of administrators at 168 law schools, as well as surveys over the past three academic years of 17,000 students enrolled at the schools.  

The administrator survey requested data on topics from academic offerings, faculty and career services to admission and graduation rates. The student survey asked students to rate their school’s academics, professors, administrators and career services and to report on its campus culture as well as their career plans.

“What students tell us about their experiences at their law schools contributes substantially to our school selections, profiles, and ratings,” Franek noted. ​

“I am so pleased that DePaul Law made the Best Law School list again this year. Our combination of academic quality, reflected in its faculty and Programs of Excellence; our academic and social support that wraps around every student; and our caring, committed community in the heart of Chicago make the DePaul Law experience a special one,” said DePaul College of Law Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea. ​
