Cooley Has Nation’s Top Law School Website Home Page!

TMC_40_years_of_excellenceGeorgetown Univ. Law Center Places Cooley in Nation’s Top Two for Second Consecutive Year.

Cooley Law School’s website homepage, cooley.edu, is the best in the nation, tied with the University of Pennsylvania, according to Georgetown University Law Center’s fourth annual ranking of the websites of the nation’s 201 ABA-approved law schools.

Roger V. Skalbeck and Matthew L. Zimmerman studied and evaluated the 201 law school home pages based upon objective criteria to determine “the best-designed, best-performing sites.” They evaluated 26 separate design elements across the categories of “Design Patterns and Metadata,” “Accessibility and Validation,” and “Marketing and Communications.”  Cooley had the largest total number of points across those three elements. See Skalbeck, Roger V. and Zimmerman, Matthew L.,Top 10 Law School Home Pages of 2012, 3 J.L. (2 J. Legal Metrics) 51-76 (2013).

In their 2012 report, Skalbeck and Zimmerman noted that Cooley’s 8th place ranking in 2011 was erroneous — Cooley actually should have been ranked 2nd in the nation for 2011. Id. at 56.

We are very proud of the beautiful look, informative content, and exceptional utility of our great website.  We hope that you will view and use it often.
