Loyola because of its walking distance proximity to Legal Aid, ACLU, Public Counsel etc


Pepperdine because of its connections through the Nootbar Institute, and with the International Justice Mission and Worldvision, and the Asylum or Special Education or Investor Advocacy Clinics.

lol @ the guy who thinks the LA job market will not absorb 300 UCLA grads. it's not like its the 2nd largest US city and one of the 5 largest legal markets, or anything. truth be told, there is a job market for people attending T2s like Pepperdine and Loyola...it's just not a very glamorous one.

hows the alumni network in the public interest fields? I know pepp's got a rep for a strong public interest network but it seems to be heavy on the international side....
