Yale Law takes first in U.S. News rankings

U.S. News and World Report released its new Graduate School rankings today, and — surprise! — Yale Law School is, again, the top law school in the nation.

This year’s first-place finish marks the Law School’s 27th consecutive year atop the rankings; since U.S. News began releasing the rankings in the early ’80s, the school has never fallen from first.

After climbing into the top 10 last year, the Yale School of Management slipped to the 11 slot this year, falling behind New York University’s Stern School of Business. Yale School of Medicine held steady in a four-way tie for sixth place in research, even with Duke, the University of Michigan and the University of Washington.
