U.S. News & World Report names 2013 best law schools

No shocks at No. 1, but there are new names at Nos. 2 and 3

It’s time to dust off the old pennant and show some school spirit, and not just for March Madness. U.S. News & World Report today released its 2013 Best Law Schools ranking, and while there was a bit of shuffling in the top 14, there were no real shocking changes.

Despite Yale Law School remaining in the top spot that it’s continuously held since 1990, the Nos. 2 and 3 schools swapped, with Stanford Law School ascending past Harvard Law School for the first time since 2007 (the schools were tied for No. 2 in 2008 and 2009).
