Smaller Classes and Lower Students to Faculty Ratio

6 to 1 Law School Students to Faculty Ratio

The students to faculty ratio is one of important consideration in typical college admission as well as law school admission.
The low ratio benefits students college life and learning with smaller class size, one-on-one attention, and fewer students. Students can feel that they are being more focused and cared for by professors, and it will improve academic achievement and positively affect student success.

In 2023, many low schools have low students to faculty ratio of 3 to 1 or 4 to 1. Especially, Georgetown University Law Center has 3 to 1 ratio with the most students of 3,042 and 812 faculties.
