Fordham Law Ranked #19 “Go-To Law School” by National Law Journal


Fordham Law School has been recognized as one of the top feeder schools for large law firms, ranking 19th in this year’s “Go-To Law School” ranking by the National Law Journal. The publication ranks law schools based on the percentage of the most recent graduating class sent to the largest 100 law firms.

Nearly 130 members (32%) of the J.D. Class of 2021 joined a large firm as first-year associates after graduation.

Additionally, the report ranked Fordham Law 6th on the number of alumni promoted from associates to partners.

Earlier this year, Fordham Law School was ranked one of the top 25 law schools for scholarly impact, according to a study conducted by Professor Gregory Sisk and colleagues at the University of St. Thomas (Minn.) that ranks law school faculties by the Scholarly Impact Score as refined by Professor Brian Leiter.
