I am planning to apply to Law School in the Fall of 2005.  I am currently doing post-graduate work at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I am trying to locate a listing of the top 25 Law Schools in the nation.

US News & World Report publishes a list every year which is the most widely recognized.  However, there are other sources which sometimes vary the order, such as Barron's.  Generally, Yale is considered the very best (very small class size) along w/ Harvard, Stanford, Boalt Hall (Berk), Chicago, NYU, UCLA, Michigan, Georgetown.

You can round out the list with more schools like UC Hastings, USC, Texas, etc.  These lists are fairly arbitrary, and often are based on perception. For example, Princeton Law School is generally well-regarded, even though there is no Princeton law school.

I recommend you begin studying for the LSAT as soon as possible.  This will be the #1 factor in your admissions (unless your parents have lots of money.)

Good Luck!
