One of the nation’s leading providers of education services has included the Mississippi College School of Law on its 2022 Best Law Schools list.
The Princeton Review, one of the most trusted tutoring, test preparation, and admission organizations, named Mississippi College School of Law on its 2022 Best Law Schools list.
Schools that make the list go through a rigorous review of the school’s institutional and student survey data, with factors including career outcomes, admission selectivity, and academic rigor.
The organization surveyed about 15,000 students and administrators at 168 law schools to determine the institutions that provide the finest career prospects, quality of life, and more.
“Being listed as one of the best law schools in the nation is a significant achievement for MC Law faculty and our students,” said Dr. Patricia Bennett, the MC Law dean. “It indicates the trust our students place in the school and the value of the law degrees they earn.
With a full-time enrollment of 432, MC Law is the largest law school in Mississippi. It boasts a 79 percent acceptance rate and median undergraduate GPA of 3.11. MC Law is the only private law school in the state.
“I believe that MC law has provided me with a very high-quality education,” said Jaime Weida, a Class of 2022 J.D. candidate, president of the Law Student Bar Association, and executive editor of the Mississippi College Law Review. “When I did not understand something, my professors worked with me to help me better understand. I do not feel like I was ‘left in the dark’ to learn foreign concepts.
MC Law also ranks among the most affordable private law schools in the country. The school offers generous merit-based scholarships that can help make the dream of a first-class legal education a reality.
The school offers unlimited opportunities for part-time work, clerkships, and hands-on externships with law firms, public interest organizations, government agencies, and leading companies. Students gain in-depth, practical experience in the legal field long before they graduate.
“MC Law is more than deserving of inclusion on this list,” Weida said. “It truly cares about individuals and MC Law has grown many incredible lawyers. At MC law, you will walk in the doors alone, but by the end of your journey, you will leave having built a family.”
