Georgia Law fared well in two recent rankings - for preparing students for firm work and for moot court performance. The law school ranked 11th in the nation based on responses from alumni when they were asked how well their law school had prepared them for firm work. Georgia Law was 6th according to the University of Houston Blakely Institute ranking that combines scores from ABA-approved moot court competitions. Both listings appeared in the November issue of The National Jurist magazine.
