Boalt Moves Up in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

The University of California, Berkeley School of Law moved up two spots in the U.S. News & World Report rankings to 11th place. The school is optimistic about further progress in light of Dean Christopher Edley's goal to make Boalt Hall a top-five school in spite of reduced state funding. The rankings analyze the top 100 accredited law schools and are based on such factors as reputation, selectivity, placement success and faculty resources. 4/6/2005
