The National Jurist has ranked the University of New Mexico School of Law fourth in the nation for its small class size in a recent survey.
The magazine used data from the 2013 edition of the Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools to determine its rankings. It found the median for a typical first-year class to be 72. By comparison, the median class size at the UNM School of Law is 38.
Alex Flores (`13) shared his first-year experience in the article: “I could walk into class and learn everyone’s name in the first week because it was so small. I’ve talked to dozens of other friends at other law schools and tell them about my third-year courses with less than 12 students each, knowing judges who guest lecture…they can’t even fathom that.”
Ahead of New Mexico in the ranking were Elon University School of Law, University of La Verne College of Law and University of Tulsa College of Law.
