Wake Forest's School of Law was tied at 31st place with Arizona State University, Ohio State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Wisconsin—Madison. While Wake Forest Law consistently ranks in the top tier law schools, this is the highest ranking the School has had since the magazine's annual report on best graduate schools began in 1990.
