SHSU Climbs the Law-School Feeder Rankings

SHSU is moving up in the law-school feeder rankings. What’s a law-school feeder, you ask? Law-School Feeders are the schools that place students in law schools, and the Law School Admissions Council tracks the top 240 schools in the country. There are 3,000 four-year universities in the country, so schools in the top 240 are among the top 8 percent nationally.

SHSU first made the list in 2008-2009, and it has remained in the top 240 for 2009-2010 and 2010-2011, the most recent data available.

Currently, SHSU is ranked 174th in the country–the top 6 percent.  For the first time, it climbed ahead of Rice, and it is within ten spots of academic powerhouses such as as University of North Carolina, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the University of Illinois.

Incidentally, the Junior Fellows began offering their Law School Seminars in 2007, and they followed these up with programs for a Mock LSAT in 2008.  Now, they host one law-school recruiting visit every year, one law-school seminar, and two Mock LSATs annually.

The Junior Fellows even brought in a South Texas Law Professor to teach a Constitutional Law class in the manner that one would be taught in law school.

In addition, the Political Science Department offers a Legal Studies Minor and several law-related classes, as do several other departments such as Criminal Justice and Business.

Where SHSU excels is in providing students with the information they need to make informed decisions about law school–and other alternatives they have.
