The Catholic University of America's Columbus School of Law is among 20 law schools recognized as best preparing students for public service employment in the field of government, according to a new list released by The National Jurist.
The National Jurist recognized law schools in five different categories as the best in preparing students for public service: government, prosecutor/public defender, state judicial clerks, Federal clerks and public interest.
The magazine reviewed each law school’s employment data, curriculum, and standard of living to determine three of the categories; the standard of living calculation included debt, loan forgiveness options, salary, and regional cost of living. The National Jurist used employment placement data exclusively for the category of state and federal judicial clerkships.
