USD Law School in top 10 nationally for placement The University of South Dakota School of Law has been recently ranked 10th in the nation for placing graduates as judicial clerks, according to the Princeton Review guide to law schools.
Thirty-six percent of the USD graduates serve as judicial clerks following graduation. Besides the USD School of Law, the other schools in the top 10 included Yale University, Seton Hall University, Rutgers University-Camden, Rutgers University-Newark, Penn State, University of North Dakota, Harvard University, Stanford University, Washington and Lee University.
"We are very pleased to be among the top ten law schools in the percentage of students who receive judicial clerkships," said Barry Vickrey, dean of the USD Law School. "These clerkships provide an excellent opportunity for students to continue their education beyond law school."
