Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah, is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is consistently one of the top-ranked law schools in the nation, and one of the best value schools — for Mormons and non-Mormons.

“The extraordinary thing about BYU Law is that students receive a rigorous legal education from a top-flight faculty while paying only moderate tuition,” Dean James Rasband said. “This tuition allows students to live their values and pursue their aspirations without their choices being shadowed by overhanging debt.”

The school also boasts the second highest employment rate in the regions — 88.6 percent — and a bar pass rate of 84 percent.

“As Malcolm Gladwell observed in his New Yorker article a couple of years ago, if one were to judge law school quality solely with reference to three metrics — the value for dollar expended, student LSAT scores and faculty scholarly productivity — BYU Law would be in the top handful in the country,” Rasband said.
