The National Jurist: The Magazine for Law Students

Posted by Library Blog on 11/14/2008 at 12:00 AM

In the magazine stand adjacent to the entrance of the bookstore are the October 2008 and November 2008 issues of the National Jurist.  This magazine provides news items about law schools, law students, lawyers, and law firms.  Timely information on “hot” practice areas, employment trends, and salaries are provided.  Issues of the National Jurist frequently contain the results of various surveys conducted of law schools and students.  Check out the National Jurist website for information on careers, money management, study aids, and the bar exam.

National Jurist used a scoring system based on a 100-point scale to assign values to law schools in three equally weighted categories - student involvement, curriculum and financial factors.  Among the sixty law schools listed, the Roger Williams University School of Law is ranked twenty-fifth!  Check out the Dean’s blog for details about this noteworthy accomplishment as published in PreLaw magazine, the the sister publication of the National Jurist.
