Law Schools in Chicago

Postby bchicagof » Tue Jun 19, 2012 9:49 am

Does anyone actually want to go to John Marshall, Kent, or Depaul law school? They all sound like bad options.

That's about 100% right. If you're into any of them, run away. Run away very very quickly.

They fill up their classes like basically every other school. The question is whether anyone should attend, and that answer is probably only if it is deeply discounted or free, only if one really wants to be a lawyer, only if one is comfortable with the idea of shit law making a meager living, and only if one has some sort of fallback plan should not even shit law work out.

You will basically get the same answer on this site about any school below the top 25 or so, which Loyola and all of the schools mentioned in the OP are.

They can be decent options in certain circumstances. 1) nearly free 2) want to do public interest 3) have a job lined up with family member or 4) just need a law degree to advance your current career
