opinion on FAMU law school

Postby captaingonzo » Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:25 pm

Hello fellow TLS members,

I was looking at FAMU discussions, but they are all a few years old. I was wondering if anyone had any updates on the school (has it become better/worse).

not sure how bad it used to be, but it's pretty bad now. only about 1/3 of grads get full time, longterm legal jobs, and that;s mostly in very small firms.

It doesn't matter how bad it is relative to how bad it used to be. It's bad now. Definitely don't go unless you have a full-ride and a (good) guaranteed job lined up.

Yeah, pretty sure everyone in Florida knows that this law school is a joke -- and that's saying something given the other FL law schools ...

Hey, now, we shouldn't all just pile on to the criticism of this law school just because most of you are going to better schools. I'm sure it's a good value.
























j/k don't go there

I don't know what a FAMU is, but I assume it sucks.

Not a good option if your goal is employment.
