National Jurist Magazine has ranked Temple Law #14 among law schools nationally for public interest programs.
The magazine based the ranking on data gathered from the American Bar Association, US News & World Report, and individual law schools. It looked at curricular offerings, job placement, and indebtedness and salary information.
Temple Law has an enduring reputation for leadership in public interest programs. Many members of the faculty have come to Temple from successful public interest careers, and often draw on their experiences in designing the public interest curriculum. In addition, Temple annually places graduates in public interest employment at a rate well above the regional and national averages. In the past two years, Temple Law students Alex Dutton ’15 and Emily Bock ’16 have won national awards for their pro bono and public interest work during law school.
