LUBBOCK – Two Texas Tech School of Law programs have been ranked among the nation’s best, according to a U.S. News & World Report ranking of America’s best graduate schools.

In a survey of lawyers, judges and law school professors throughout America, the Texas Tech School of Law was ranked 14th among the nation’s 191 accredited law schools in trial advocacy preparation and 23rd among the nation’s legal writing programs.

“I’m very pleased at this national recognition for the quality of our law school, its faculty and its graduates,” Huffman said. “These national rankings reflect a well-recognized appreciation of the Texas Tech law programs among those in our region who know us best. I expect these rankings to rise even higher as legal professionals on the East and West Coasts become better informed concerning the excellence and accomplishments of our relatively young law school.”

The rankings were in the April 2006 issue of the magazine.
