UCI will be ranked after it receives full accreditation in the summer of 2015.

So spring 2016.

It gets accreditation five years after it opens, which would be August of 2014. The TLS profile says it will be ranked in 2014, but I don't know if that means this coming Spring. According to this (LinkRemoved) it won't be ranked until next year.

Regardless, please do not make your decision based on USNews ranking.

I remember a UCI law faculty member saying somewhere on the site that they get full accreditation after the end of the 2013-2014 school year in July-August 2014, then will be ranked for the first time in March of 2015.

Irvine is an interesting clusterfuck. I really hope it does extremely well and keeps low class sizes. That way it can just dominate the smaller Orange County market, but with good attorneys. Hopefully, that will help push out Chapman, Whittier, and other shit schools that try and take advantage of kids that don't want to move out of mommy and daddy's.

25-50 would not be unreasonable. Lower than that would be a disappointment and higher than that would be a joke.

Interesting. A buddy goes there and told me that they will be ranked this year. Maybe he has his info wrong. I'm pretty interested to see where it will rank. You know that it won't be ranked ahead of UCLA and USC, so a top 20 ranking is unlikely. I can see it landing somewhere between 25-40.
