The Best Law Schools for Women Law Students

The Best Law Schools for Women

Ever since the 2016 election and the legal turmoil that began shortly after President Donald Trump’s swearing in (and has continued to this day), thousands of college graduates — and women in particular — have been inspired to go to law school.

As our readers know, the latest Princeton Review law school rankings are out, and today, we’ll focus on yet another incredibly important ranking during the #MeToo #TimesUp era in America, an era where a woman who’s a law school graduate could become the Democratic nominee for president: The law schools with the greatest resources for women.***

According to Princeton Review, these are the law schools where women stand on equal footing with their male classmates:

  1. Stanford University School of Law
  2. Vermont Law School
  3. University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law
  4. New England Law – Boston
  5. University of Toledo College of Law
  6. UC Davis School of Law
  7. Washington University School of Law – St. Louis
  8. Brooklyn Law School
  9. Temple University Beasley School of Law

Law school may be the perfect place for women in America to resist, persist, and prove that the future is female. The law is a powerful tool, and we hope that women who want change will wield it wisely.
