Its actually a SECOND tier law school
The Law School is ranked as a "Tier 2" school by the 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report's "Best Grad Schools." Rutgers Law–Newark is ranked 82nd overall in the 2012 U.S. News Law rankings, tied with nine additional schools. The Law School is ranked 54th in Super Lawyers' 2010 U.S. Law School Rankings.
