I don't think Ari Emanuel went to law school. But yes, he just negotiated the shit out of nbc, presumably with the help of plenty of lawyers.

Not gonna lie - I had to google "McGeorge School of Law" under the impression it was going to land in some urban dictionary definition. It's real.

Agreed.

I guess I just assumed the real Ari had also gone to LS as well.

Sooo weird...I was logging on to start a thread exactly like this when it showed up on the mainpage!

So I'll go with the one I was going to start with and one I think most people will find interesting...

Scott Boras (baseball/basketball superagent) - University of the Pacific McGeorge Law School.

Whoops, just saw someone else posted this!

Scott Rosenblum - California Western University (prominent criminal defense attorney)
Scott Boras - McGeorge (not excatly a lawyer, I know)

Instead of famous attorney attending prestigious schools, I am much more interested in famous attorneys who attended T3/T4's.
