UH Law School among national top 10 for best chance of paying off debt

From UH News, Nov 14, 2016

The William S. Richardson School of Law once again has earned national attention from U.S. News & World Report as one of the 10 best law schools in the country in terms of starting salaries that exceed the debt that law graduates carry.

In a new short list published by the magazine known primarily for its annual rankings, the UH Law School was mentioned alongside Yale University, Boston University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison as one of 10 best American law schools for offering students the best chance of paying off their law school debt.

The new list, based on 2014 data, shows average student debt at Richardson of $56,266, with a median private sector starting salary for its graduates of $77,500.

“Law school can still lead to a highly profitable career for the most fortunate law graduates,” notes the article. “At the 10 U.S. ranked law schools with the highest salary-debt ratios, the median starting salary of recent graduates who work in the private sector greatly exceeds the average student’s school debt.”

Richardson Law Dean Avi Soifer said the list again underscores the reasonable cost of the UH Law School. Rankings have repeatedly noted that it is one of the most cost efficient of the ABA-top ranked schools.

Added Soifer, “We are fortunate not only to have one of the lowest tuitions in the country, but also to have students who genuinely support and help each other to obtain judicial clerkships and positions internationally, as well as to find professional work in law firms, government and public interest.”
