by Donna McGill
Despite is pricey tuition (just over $47,000 annually), the admissions process is one of the most competitive in the country. Only 18% will receive an invitation to attend and most of those score within the 98th percentile for the LSAT. The median undergraduate GPA is 3.7. It's currently ranked number 10 in U.S. News and World Report's law school rankings.
The school offers many perks, including its Center for Career Strategy with prepares law students with the necessary resources to secure a position following graduation and their bar exams. Among its many services, the center provides individual counseling, career-oriented panels and programs, coaching and networking opportunities and Myers-Briggs psychological assessments. The dynamics are designed to provide the best resources to those who have already established an earlier career and simply need the specific skills necessary for the legal sector.
The Bluhm Legal Clinic, located on the Northwestern University School of Law campus, is an intense training effort that ensures ethics and qualities are in place. It's simply an added tool law students can add to their respective arsenals. Its new facility is a state of the art design located on the 8th floor of the Rubloff. Training rooms, conference rooms, file areas and more than 30 offices are found in the clinic.
Now, the law school is preparing for the departure of its current dean, David E. Van Zandt. He is relocating to New York, where he has been offered the presidency at The New School. Kim Yuracko has been named interim law school dean during the transition and will officially become the new dean on January 1, 2011. Indeed, the future is bright for this world renowned law school. This announcement came in late October, 2010. This timing comes as the school celebrates its 150th anniversary.
