FTR everyone in Minnesota calls U of iowa just "iowa." Nobody ever talks talks about illinois out here.


I think UIUC is a top law school thing, i've never heard it anywhere else

i prefer urbana law to be honest


I prefer "who gives a flying fuck"


wtf, brotato? why the angry response?

If so, UIUC is seriously making itself a contender for Shadiest Supposedly-Reputable Law School of the Decade.



Just shows how devastating it can be when you fall out of the top-20. Many people don't know that UIUC was once ranked as high as #16 in USNWR.

There is something noble about a dean who would risk their career to help students get jobs. I know this can also help him in the rankings, but at least it's a situation where being shady does help students (albeit not future students who may misinterpret their job prospects). At least this dean lies about how the students get jobs, and not about them having jobs. By TTTT standards, he is a saint.

But it's in Champaign. Why would you nickname something after a neighboring town? Pretty sure Harvard is not nicknamed Somerville Law.

True, but it ain't called Cambridge Law either. See Vanwinkle for details.
