Is there a website that lists the top programs that each law school is known for?

Be wary of these rankings, though: Specialty rankings don't translate into employability.

The only ranking you need to concern yourself with is the overall ranking.

Specialty programs are not really how law school works.

A) so shitty schools can feel good about themselves
B) so it's not just HYS -> CCN -> everyone else
C) because they also do it when ranking other grad programs (it matters more for eg medical school)
