Wake Forest Law has once again been named among the Best Value for private law schools by The National Jurist in the Fall 2016 issue of preLaw magazine.

Using estimated net tuition, or “true tuition,” figures, which subtracted schools’ estimated average scholarship offerings from the cost of tuition, The National Jurist identified Wake Forest Law as one of just 12 Best Value private law schools. Third on the list, Wake Forest Law saw debt drop to $97,550, down almost $10,000 from last year. This year marks the list’s 10th annual publication.

For this ranking, The National Jurist looks at a number of academic and financial variables, including true tuition, student debt accumulation, employment success, bar passage rate and cost of living. Employment accounts for 35 percent of the ranking. The average employment of the best value law schools increased from 79.4 percent to 80.3 percent, and Wake Forest Law’s employment rate is 86.9 percent.
