10/14/2004

Suffolk University Law School has been named one of the nation’s best law schools by The Princeton Review. The Law School’s inclusion in “Best 117 Law Schools” is based on student surveys and institutional data. “Every school we profile in this book offers students an outstanding law school education, yet each one is distinctive in its academic programs and campus environment,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s vice president in charge of guidebook publishing.

Students surveyed praised Suffolk Law School’s location in the heart of Boston’s legal community, its superlative research resources and its beautiful building.

The Princeton Review surveyed 7,000 students during the 2003-2004 academic year, asking them more than 40 questions about themselves, their career plans and their school’s academics, student body and campus life.
