Princeton Review has rankings of most liberal and most conservative. Apparently they do student surveys to gather the data.

"Most Conservative Students" – George Mason University
"Most Liberal Students" – American University

There are lists of both but you have to sign up to see the full rankings. Also a quick search of TLS shows at least one other thread with this topic, so I think the joke responses are merited.

Thanks to Rand, Posthawk and Ohlawl for relevant posts. And Ohlawl I looked back in the forum a few pages and couldn't find any threads on this topic other than one that was specifically about Arizona State. Yeah maybe doing a search would have been the best idea, but I figured if it hadn't been discussed since at least July it wouldn't be a horrific thing to bring it up again and that there could have possibly been new stats that came out since then. My sincere apologies to anybody that may have been have found themselves dreadfully bored having to read a question that they may have seen a few months ago. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

Dont worry about people on this forum who are dumbasses. You have to just assume the ones with 10,000 plus posts either have no life, or are actually interested in helping people. I am sure you can easily figure out who goes for which.

Just to be clear, I made fun of your question because I think it's a silly question, not because it's been discussed recently. Median political belief isn't as easy to measure as median LSAT.

Why would the degree to which the faculty/students of a given law school suffer from your particular flavor of ideological disease be relevant?

I suppose it might be nice to know where you can go to have your silly beliefs challenged/stretched, but something tells me that instead, you're looking for a place where your delicate conservative flower won't be trampled on by those mean liberal hippies.

Protip: If you focus on going to a conservative enough school, you'll get the same lessons you would have gotten at a good school. The rub is that the unemployment line isn't as kind a teacher as your classmates would have been.

Anyway, to make a good faith attempt to answer the question: It's not quite T-14, but Ave Maria is super conservative; try there!

Yale is whatever you want it to be. Unicorns could shooting rainbows into your mouth and you still have it made.

I find it highly unlikely that every single student, professor and administrator at UVA voted for McCain, considering Obama won Virginia by about 7 points.

Are there like 7,000 people living in the State of Virginia?

You have clearly bested him. He'll think twice before he makes such a bold statement in the future.
