The top 14 law schools are often abbreviated as the T14.
Each year, individual schools usually shift up or down the law school rankings, and there can be significant differences in a school’s ranking from one year to the next. But in general, the colleges within the T14 remain the same.
The top 14 law schools share a number of common characteristics; notably, they have the most competitive admissions standards, offer the most reputable “brand names,” and place graduates nationally—rather than just locally—at law firms, nonprofits, and government agencies. Consequently, students vie for spots in the T14 because of the competitive advantage these schools offer to graduates entering the job market.
