From Which Law Schools Outrank the Undergraduate Institutions With Which They’re Affiliated?

Here are the Top 100 law schools that have overcome the most headwind — the law schools with the biggest positive spread between its ranking and the ranking of its parent university

Note that the chart understates the spread in many cases, because it assigns the highest possible ranking to schools in the Third (#131) and Fourth (#196) Tier of the National Universities Rankings.

USC (#16, #27)

UCLA (#15, #25).

Update:  Several readers commented that since U.S News ranks more national universities (262) than law schools (184), a more meaningful measure would look at the disparity by percentiles rather than by absolute rank.  See here for a ranking by percentiles
