Chapman Law

Postby FranchiZe48 » Thu Jun 03, 2010 3:49 pm

The improvement to Chapman's ranking have been staggering. For southern Californians, is Chapman a legitimate option now?

What is important is how employers observe it in comparison to other schools in the area, not how high it can climb by gaming the rankings (which pretty much every law school does).

You also have to take into consideration that Chapman used[b][/b] to be the only law school in Orange County, so its improvement on the ranking system wouldve been more beneficial then. Now that UC Irvine has opened up a new law school, improvements for Chapman might not be as significant since firms in OC will be more likely to feed off of UCI rather than Chapman

You think the answer is going to be different from the responses you got a month ago on the exact same topic?

Depends on whom you ask, your options, goals, etc. There's no absolute answer at this stage. I do think Irvine will probably hurt its prospects at least a bit, even though the two schools will most likely end up in different tiers for the foreseeable future.

Along with UCI, USC, and UCLA? No.
