The University of Virginia School of Law now ranks No. 1 in Best Classroom Experience, and continues to rank No. 1 in Best Professors and Best Quality of Life, according to The Princeton Review’s annual law school rankings, which were released Tuesday.

As part of the 2020 rankings, the Law School is also No. 2 in Best Career Prospects, No. 4 in Toughest To Get Into and No. 4 in Best for Federal Clerkships, a new category.

Only UVA Law and Stanford Law School cracked the top five in all six of these categories.

The Law School has been ranked No. 1 in Best Quality of Life since the 2015 rankings and in Best Professors since the 2018 rankings.

The Princeton Review factored in data from surveys of 19,000 students attending 167 law schools in the United States, and of administrators at those schools.
