Best Value-Quality Law Schools

I previously blogged the Best Value Law Schools rankings from the National Jurist and preLaw magazines, based on three variables: (i) tuition below $25,000 (public schools) and $30,000 (private schools); (ii) bar passage rate above state average; and (iii) employment rate > 85%. But value, of course, is only one part of the equation. The following ranking combines the value ranking with a quality ranking, as measured by the Hylton Rankings (which combines two quality variables from U.S. News: peer reputation and median LSAT) [click on chart to enlarge]:

For a full listing of the Top 61 Value-Quality Law Schools, see TaxProf Blog.

Paul, very interesting post! One further study that might be fun is to see what relationship the peer reputation has to the "newness" of the school. Is there some sort of linear relationship between peer rating and how long a school's been up and running?
