FIU Law ranked in the top 100 in 2015 ‘U.S. News’ rankings

For the first time in FIU Law‘s 12- year history, the college has been ranked in the Top 100 in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools rankings.

The rankings reflect the success of FIU Law’s students, graduates and faculty. FIU Law ranked 55th in the nation (3rd in Florida) for the selectivity of its incoming students and 56th in the nation (2nd in Florida) for the success of its graduates in finding jobs.

National reputation among law deans, judges and lawyers also increased. FIU Law’s overall ranking was 100. This is the fourth year in a row that FIU Law ascends in the rankings, from unranked to 132nd to 113th to 105th  and now to 100.


“This is a great achievement, and only possible because of the caliber of our students, graduates and faculty,” said Dean R. Alexander Acosta. “Our consistent rise in the rankings and ascension into the top 100 reflects our efforts to provide our students a rigorous academic program, to expose them to learning opportunities in Miami’s global legal market, and to offer a diverse and exceptional faculty that challenges and inspires.”

“Numerical rank is one way to evaluate a law school, but there are other factors that make FIU Law exceptional,” Acosta said. “The diversity among our faculty and within the student body, our location in Miami – the gateway to an international legal market – and our affordability, make FIU Law an outstanding option for prospective students.”

Since 1989, U.S. News & World Report has published law school rankings.
