Business Insider has ranked Florida State University College of Law as Florida’s #1 law school, and 32nd best nationally, on its 50 Best Law Schools in America list. Florida State is the only Florida law school in the top 50.

The ranking is based on the results of a survey of legal industry professionals, acceptance rates reported by U.S. News & World Report, and post-graduate employment rates reported by the American Bar Association. Survey participants were asked to “select the top 10 law schools in terms of how well they prepare students to land their ideal job.”

“We are thrilled that, like several other national publications, Business Insider has rated us the #1 law school in Florida,” said Dean Donald J. Weidner. “This ranking is especially gratifying because it is based in large part on how well we prepare our students and on their successes in landing the jobs they want.”
