Tier 3 Law School Requirements

Tier 3 law schools are locally recognized law schools.  Unlike tier one law schools like Yale and Stanford which are nationally (and globally renowned) and tier 2 law schools like Loyola (Chicago) and Pepperdine which are regionally renowned, tier 3 law school are locally recognized, such as within a part of a state or territory.

It should be noted that getting into a tier 3 law school is just as good as getting into a tier 1 or tier 2 law school since all of the following schools are ABA approved and have excellent faculty and student bodies.
