The University of Chicago Law School is the graduate school of law at the University of Chicago. It was founded in 1902 by a coalition of donors led by John D. Rockefeller, and is consistently one of the highest-rated law schools in the United States.
The U.S. News & World Report ranks it fourth among U.S. law schools, and it is noted particularly for its influence on the economic analysis of law. The University of Chicago Law School was ranked third in the country by the 2015 Above The Law Rankings, which ranks law schools based on employment outcomes such as quality of jobs, federal clerkships, and alumni satisfaction.
According to the Law School's 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 92.1% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation. The ABA disclosures indicate that 75% of Chicago grads earned starting salaries of $160,000 or greater upon graduation.
