    The University of Alabama School of Law is a law school located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. University of Alabama School of Law is one of five law schools in the state, one of three that is ABA accredited, and of the accredited schools, it is the only public law school in Alabama. In 2003-2005, there were 541 (536 J.D., 5 International LL.M.) students enrolled, and in 2006-2007, the first year student body had a median 163 LSAT, and 3.56 GPA. Of these students, approximately 40% were female and 12% were minority students. The 2006-2007 academic year also saw the opening of a $15 million dollar addition to the law school with more room for the clinical program and mock trial teams, study and meeting rooms, new offices, a cafe, and additional classrooms.

    The majority of students come from Alabama, although 130 undergraduate schools from 26 states are represented altogether. The average age for incoming students was 25, but many students did not come straight out of undergraduate school. A number of students have worked or earned masters and doctoral level degrees in other fields prior to coming to law school. In recent years, Alabama's students have gone on to jobs with major law firms in Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, Washington, DC, among many other cities. The job placement rate of graduates within 9 months of graduation is 97.8%, though this statistic does not indicate legal vs. other employment. Alabama's student body is medium-sized for a law school, with about 170 students in the entering class. Students have the opportunity to study in joint programs, like the MBA, masters or PhD in economics, political science, or history.

    Students participate in a variety of activities, including intramural and inter-school moot court, and extensive trial practice. Student organizations span the spectrum from the Christian Legal Society, Federalist Society, American Constitution Society, and Dorbin Society, to OutLaw (a group for those interested in gay rights).

    The University of Alabma School of Law, located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is competitive, but this is partly because it is a good value for any perspective law student, but especially ones with connections to Alabama.

    Listed as Number Three on PreLaw Magazine's best values in law schools, Bama Law has an in-state tuition of only $9,736.00 a year, and it has an out of state tuition of $22,170 (which is still competitive compared to private law schools). It has a whopping 97% bar passage rate for first time takers compared with only 79% for the State of Alabama as a whole. And, 93.6% of its graduating classes find employment quickly. Further, there are more expensive places to live than Alabama.

    Claude Reeves, the assistant dean for admissions, to PreLaw that the law school "strives to offer a top-rate education without charging its students unreasonable tuition. Our lower tuition provides students and graduates with options because they are not saddled with large amounts of student loan debt."

    The law school has enjoyed visits from 8 U.S. Supreme Court justices. It has a Public interest Institute to encourage students to work for non-profit or government agencies. It has a public-interest certificate program. And it has 100 spots per year in six different legal clinics that it runs. So, we are talking about practical learning.
