Drake Ranked 7th in the Country!

We are proud to announce that Drake Law placed 7th in the country in the ABA’s annual competitions championship.  The championship is kind of like the NCAA’s all-sports trophy, because it’s awarded based on the law school’s performance in all ABA competitions – Arbitration, Client Counseling, Negotiations, and Moot Court.  Drake won the regional competition in two of those competitions this year and went on to finish in 6th place in Arbitration and 3rd place in Client Counseling. This year, we finished just behind Northwestern and Ohio State in the overall rankings. Congratulations to all of our students competing, proving that Drake Law “creates complete professionals”!  Link to:
