US Law Schools

See Rankings for Canadian Law Schools


Only Common Law is practiced in the United States. Most law schools in the US use LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS), a centralized system that collects undergraduate academic records. Also, unlike most Canadian law schools, many US law schools require you to submit a résumé summarizing extra-curricular and work experiences.

Here are list of some of the top law schools in the US:
