The University of Houston recently received its annual program rankings from U.S. News and World Report. For the tenth consecutive year, several programs have ranked in the top 10 among law schools.
The Healthcare Law program rose 5 places from #8 in 2016 to #3 in 2018, and the UH Law Center overall rose from #59 in 2016 to #54 in 2018.
The Part-Time Law program rose from #11 in 2016 to #6 in 2018. The program has been ranked in the top 20 for the past nine years, since U.S. News and World Report began ranking part-time law programs in 2009.
