Although, if you ask people in Kentucky, a frightening number of them will identify NKU as the best law school in the state.

UK and Louisville are fine schools. NKU is T4.

SIU-C is not a great school, but it is cheap enough that it is not a bad Tier 3 school. It also has a bit of a niche market in central and downstate Illinois. It is one of the few T3 schools I think can actually be a good investment.

Best: University of Toronto
Worst: Western New England School of Law

Edited to include that I know 4 people who attended or are attending University of Toronto and 1 person who attended Western New England. Toronto graduates work on Bay Street and in NYC, the Western New England graduate never found a job even remotely connected to the legal profession.

It's Tier 4, no? But I agree, it's cheap enough that it can be a decent option for someone who really wants to be a lawyer, and who doesn't mind working in the smaller communities of Southern Illinois. I put it there mostly based on its T4 status, and its inability to place graduates into higher-profile jobs and markets.

Edit: Definitely skipped my mind that I know an IU-B student. Guess that would beat out Mizzou and SLU for the best school.

This thread would be more interesting if it asked where the dumbest law student you know attends school and where the smartest attends school.

(Though I must admit that if Penn didn't come to fruition, BU probably would have been my second choice).
