Is the University of New Hampshire a Better Law School Than Franklin Pierce?
According to the results of Gordon Smith's crowdsourced survey of law schools which asked "In your judgment, which of the following is the better law school?," the answer is "yes." In his recent Leiter Law School Reports blog post, Dan Filler has the following comments:
Perhaps the single most important thing it teaches us is: brand matters. We all believed this already. But either accidentally or intentionally, Gordon tested this theory with his new rankings by including one law school under two names: Franklin Pierce and the University of New Hampshire. The two schools partnered this year and as of this past fall, the Pierce name was replaced by UNH. So which school does the crowd think superior? No surprise, State U fared far better than Franklin Pierce. UNH scored a 43; Pierce a 33. UNH jumped 20 spots in the reputation rankings simply by changing its name.
Wonder how why Southern New England School of Law rank now that it is the School of Law UMass-Dartmouth?
