Canada's best professional schools unveiled by Maclean's - For the third year, special issue ranks law schools, and evaluates medical, MBA and engineering schools across the country

    TORONTO, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Maclean's third-annual guide to professional
schools, on newsstands today, is a practical, comprehensive guide, featuring
23 pages of in-depth, need-to-know information, charts and articles covering
Canada's law, business, medical and engineering schools across the country -
plus a full ranking of the country's law schools. Maclean's gives prospective
students all the information they need on the toughest professional schools to
get into and how to get into them.

    The law school ranking:

    For the third year in a row, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law
takes the top spot among common law schools. McGill Faculty of Law also
maintains its second-place position for the third year running, but this year
it shares that spot with Osgoode Hall Law School, which last year ranked
    Maclean's assesses each institution against recognized measures of
faculty quality and of how well graduates do in the workplace. In all, we
sought to answer two questions: Are a law school's professors significant
contributors to the intellectual life of their discipline? And do a law
school's graduates land the most sought-after jobs in government, the private
sector and academia?

engineering still a man's world?
