AU’s Washington College of Law (WCL) is among the best in preparing students for public service, according to National Jurist magazine.

WCL was named one of the top schools for government jobs and one of the top schools for public interest. Neither Georgetown nor George Washington University made either list. National Jurist also honored top law schools for prosecutor and public defender jobs, state judicial clerks, and federal clerks.

The rankings, based on employment data, curricula, and standard of living, will appear in the January issue of National Jurist and the winter issue of preLaw magazine.
