Super Lawyers recently released its first annual ranking of U.S. law schools. Super Lawyers is an annual listing of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. It is published as a special supplement in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines across the country and has been rating lawyers for almost 20 years.
Unlike most rankings which look at things like bar passage rates and student/faculty ratios, these rankings are based on the total number of graduates named to the state and regional Super Lawyers lists. Here are the full rankings for 2010 (the University of Connecticut came in at #63). The Connecticut page also provides separate lists of the Top 10 Connecticut Super Lawyers and the Top 25 Women Connecticut Super Lawyers for 2010. For more about the rankings, click here.
