Above The Law, the legal gossip blog, has rolled out its own list of what it considers the best law schools.

The Breaking Media-owned site rated its inaugural top 50 universities for 2013 on employment data, firm placement and tuition costs.

“Due to imperfections in the existing law school ranking systems, we decided to take a shot at ranking the law schools,” the site wrote in an email to FishbowlNY. “Here’s our inaugural set of rankings, reflecting our general philosophy of ranking based on outcomes rather than inputs.”

Check out the explainer the ATL folks posted on their site — it’s complete with a beautiful infographic that shows how they ranked the schools, and why they think their top 50 are better than competitors’.
