We are number 2 in the SEC behind Vanderbilt (#15) and ahead of schools like Emory (tied for #23), Notre Dame (tied for #23), University of Washington (#28), UNC (#31), and UGA (#33). We are also the 6th ranked public school. Kudos to Dean Randall and the entire law school faculty and staff!
That's amazing. And our rates for tuition are affordable. That's why I chose this place. Good education for a good price.
My nephew starts in the fall - we are so proud of him. This is really great news!!! Hope the tuition stays reasonable!.
you're welcome guys, you're welcome...
...in all honesty our ranking shot up as soon as I left. RTR.
We have the lowest total enrollment of any school in the top 50 and the second-cheapest out-of-state tuition in the top 50 (behind BYU).
In other words, exclusive and a good value for the ranking. I think within the next couple of years the law school will be safely in the top 20.
As a student, my only complaint is the dated facility, which aside from the new annex, seems to be stuck in the 70s. But that aligns with value I guess.

You nailed it... new fancy buildings = big, fat tuition checks.
Be careful what you wish for.
Oh I know! Just when you spend 12-18 hours in a building a day, you'd like it to be a little nicer and modern. They could improve on the interior decor without too much expense. Overall, though, it is a great place to attend school, for which I'm very blessed.

My Daughter ( A 2L) called last week to tell us the news. She is very excited about the ranking. We are very proud parents of our daughter and the school. RTR
If you dreamed you were a sleep and you woke up, would you be awake?
Very proud of UA law, and very pleased with the educations my brother (JD'66) and I (JD '74) got there. Farrah Hall, cramped, crowded and dated, didn't bother me at all.
Glad I got in when the standards weren't so high.
I work for a global firm, and our people are constantly impressed with the Bama grads we hire. Trust me when I tell you that our law school grads are doing us very proud. Wouldn't trade my Capstone law degree for any of the Ivy b.s.
I chose NYU over Alabama for law school, but I'm happy to see my alma mater institution kicking ass. Truly a great faculty and excellent admissions staff at Bama, and I'm glad US News fixed their SNAFU from a couple years ago that had Bama down to like #38.
Do they still do the $25 iTunes credit for all applicants?

Finished my LL.M. at NYU on the recommendation of Professor Bryce. Both great schools. And the Bama grads are also given priority to get into the NYU LL.M. tax program based on the strength of the folks that have gone there. It's a great pipeline.
Indeed -- I've met a few Bama grad tax LL.M. folks here in NYC. They're always a nice addition to the NYC Bama Alumni group. Current 3L friend at Bama seeking to get into the NYU tax LL.M. program. Here's hoping.
PM me. Happy to write a rec for your friend.
You were the key.
I think we were in the low 40s high 30s when we were there. And that was just 9 years ago.
Now are you in a position to do hiring?
Btw I have a UF law LLM. I went the cheaper route and wish I had done the NYU Route in some ways.
PM'd you -- thanks a bunch, man!
Send me your info. I work in national tax at a Big 4 in DC. We're not hiring at the moment, but can get you in the system.
Got my degree in 79. Started in Farrah Hall and we moved to the new facility during my second year. It was state of the art then. Hard to believe its dated now.
DEHIII - send me a PM with your contact info.
