Class Ranks

Employers who regularly hire Brandeis law students and graduates are familiar with the school's strenuous grading policy.  For those unfamiliar with the law school, we strongly encourage you to review our class rank cutoffs for each of our class years.  Other factors such as course selection, honor activities, and involvement in externships/clinics should also be considered.

The Grade & Percentile Tables below were updated with GPA information through the Fall Semester of 2021. Each table provides the minimum GPA required for the given class rank.
