Yale University remains the top of U.S. News & World Report’s annual law school rankings, but Stanford has jumped ahead of Harvard, which fell one spot to number three. Other changes include the entry of Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law into the top 10 – tied for the spot with Duke University – and University of California at Berkeley’s fall to No. 12. University of California at Berkeley interim law dean Melissa Murray told that that the school was “in the news for all the wrong reasons for much of the past year” because of sexual harassment allegations against former dean Sujit Choudhry. The top-10 schools are:

  1. Yale University
  2. Stanford University
  3. Harvard University
  4. University of Chicago
  5. Columbia University
  6. New York University
  7. University of Pennsylvania
  8. University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and University of Virginia (tie)
  9. Duke University and Northwestern University (tie)
