Doesn't UIUC have the reputation for feeding into biglaw? Specifically corporate biglaw? The clinical/experiential training offered doesn't seem as robust as the offerings at other schools (Wisc, Loyola, etc.). For someone hoping to practice family law (or, if that doesn't work out, employment law, immigration law, public interest... not at all interested in biglaw)... is UIUC still the best option?


If you want family law and network you will be able to get it. I know plenty of people in family law from UIUC, including the bigger family law firms like Berger Schatz. If you have a full ride and want to be in chicago, UIUC will be far superior to Wisconsin and probably superior to loyola. I think UIUC has 20-30% higher employment score than Loyola, it is not just big law.

Gotta say, really impressed you were able to manufacture a fake law firm website that quickly. 10/10

It's pretty good but nowhere close to the GOAT Payne & Fears.

Sharts Burger had no idea what they were doing when they formed their firm. Payne and Fears knew EXACTLY what they were doing.
