For the sixth straight year, the University of Denver Sturm College of Law is ranked among the top 100 law schools in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

The publication’s annual ranking of America’s Best Graduate Schools,” released this week, lists the Sturm College of Law among the nation’s top-tier schools, tied at No. 77 with Rutgers School of Law-Newark, University at Buffalo Law School-SUNY, University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law, and the University of Richmond School of Law.

Additionally, the Sturm College’s Environmental and Natural Resources Program is ranked No. 16 in the country for environmental law studies. Sturm ties at No. 21 for tax law and is among the nation’s 100 most selective law schools.

“It is gratifying that the achievements of our environmental law and tax law programs have been recognized,” says Sturm Dean José Juárez Jr. “We will continue to work to achieve similar recognition of other excellent programs at the Sturm College of Law.”

Nearly 85 percent of Sturm College of Law students had a job waiting for them at graduation, and nearly 99 percent were employed within nine months of graduating, U.S.News reported.

U.S.News & World Report ranks law and other graduate programs each year, incorporating both expert opinion and statistical data collected in surveys of more than 1,200 programs and 12,500 academics and professionals.
