now if you're asking about finding friends with similar interests, that might vary on law schools, but guaranteed you will find plenty of conservatives at all t14s.
Lawyers work on behalf of clients, and their ideals aren't always aligned. Liberal or conservative, if you can't get past your own ideology and see the big picture, you probably aren't going to do well in law school or as an attorney.
