The list ranked over 200 ABA-accredited law schools by percentage point differences.

“Our students continue to set high standards for the university, the state, and the nation,” said FIU Law Dean Antony Page. “They develop their impressive talents through the college’s wealth of educational resources, such as the Academic Excellence Program, which help them excel in school and continue to raise standards as great new lawyers.”
