Wake Forest Law ranks among the top Intellectual Property Law programs in a new set of comprehensive rankings released this week by Law Street Media.
Wake Forest Law is among 57 law schools to receive an honorable mention in the Law Street Specialty Rankings. Law Street’s rankings for Intellectual Property programs are the first of five specialty rankings scheduled to be released this summer. The rankings focus on key specialties in law and were created with the recognition that the law school market is rapidly changing.
The Law Street rankings represent a new and innovative way to measure the opportunities given to students, and the breadth of specialty education provided by each of these programs.
“We undertook this ongoing project because of the insufficiency of existing rankings such as those published by U.S. News and World Report that overlook meritorious programs,” said John A. Jenkins, founder and CEO of Law Street Media. “In the current competitive marketplace both for law schools as well as new graduates, it is vital to drill down into the specialties and take a closer look at which programs truly offer the greatest value. Tuition payers need to be fully informed. The fact that we found some unheralded-yet-excellent programs is good news for anyone considering the major tuition investment that law school has become.”
