Something rank about the rankings?

Minnesota has four law schools. U.S. News and World Report ranks one of them No. 20 in the nation, two of them as "Tier 3" and one as "Tier 4." These rankings have riled some deans and been criticized as subjective and unreliable in academic circles. Yet they have real-world implications on how some perceive the law school and on the number of applications it gets.

In the next Minnesota Lawyer, we take a look at the law-school ranking controversy and the response locally. Watch for it in Monday's paper!
