NIU Law School is the 13th Best Value in the Country.

preLaw Magazine and the National Jurist have ranked this country's law schools by value.  Law schools make the Best Value rankings if they meet three criteria:  Their bar pass rate is higher than the state average; their average indebtedness after graduation is below $100,000; and their employment rate nine months after graduation is 85 percent of the class or higher.

NIU ranks 13th on their list, higher than any other law school in Illinois. Click here for the full explanation of the rankings from NationalJurist.com.

There is an interesting debate in the blogosphere exploring the reasons for the persistent high unemployment rates in the US and elsewhere. Conservatives lay the blame on the structural skills mismatch and argue that this cannot be resolved through any stimulus spending measures. Liberals claim that the massive slump in aggregate demand from the boom, means that there are massive idling resources which can be brought to work with an appropriately structured stimulus program.
