Boston Legal market question

Postby senzi3 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 9:16 pm

Hello TLS, I am currently a sophomore at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy(The Harvard of the United States Maritime Academies) studying Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and my current UG GPA is 3.066 (i have time to bring that up).

so my question is Which Law school should I attend if i want to work in a Law firm in Boston, MA i.e. BU BC Suffolk?

The areas of law i am interested in are Intellectual Property, Admiralty/Maritime Law, and National Security law

Thanks in advance TLS

and would it make any difference that one of my teachers is a senior partner at a law firm

Thanks in advance TLS

The correct answer is a top 14 school in the northeast, or BU/BC on a scholarship. Suffolk and other Boston schools generally aren't good bets unless on full scholarship because the legal market sucks and it is exceedingly difficult to get good jobs from these school.

Go to lstscorereports.com and go to Massachusetts. You owe it yourself to see these statistics.

The correct answer is: H -> Y -> the rest of the T14 (kind of) -> BU/BC
