The University of MemphisCecil C. Humphreys School of Law continues to garner “Top 10” national recognition. The Princeton Review has ranked the U of M Law School eighth in terms of “Best Quality of Life” in its 2011 edition of Best 172 Law Schools.

The rankings are based on the following criteria: whether there is a strong sense of community at the school, how aesthetically pleasing the law school is, the location of the law school, the quality of the social life, classroom facilities, and the library staff.

Other law schools in the publication’s Quality of Life Top 10 include Virginia, Duke, Stanford, and Northwestern.

“We are very fortunate to be able to combine an excellent quality of law school life with a best value legal education, all in a state-of-the-art, renovated, historic facility,” said Dean Kevin Smith.

The Cecil C. Humphreys School is located in the former U.S. Customs House in downtown Memphis, near the city’s judicial and legal community. Recently, preLaw magazine rated the school ninth nationally as a “best value” law school.
