Avvo Law School Rankings

Avvo, the free web site that provides legal information,
rates lawyers and offers client reviews of lawyers, has started
its own law school rankings web site. The rankings are based
on Avvo's attorney ratings, which are gleaned from bar associations,
lawyers' Web sites, and lawyers themselves. This year, alumni
from 492 law schools are represented in the rankings. The
complete directory of law schools ranked may be found here.

U.S. News won't be getting nervous about the competition
from Avvo any time soon, but prospective law students
and their families will undoubtedly be checking out Avvo
as part of their research.
