FIU is an entirely different part of Florida, and neither school has a reach of more than 600 yards, so I doubt they're going to be stepping on each other's toes.
As if FIU and Cooley law grads can get a jerb in their respective law schools.
I'm honestly bewildered as to what jobs anyone graduating from cooley tampa could possibly get except ones that are entirely dependent on nepotism. Tampa already only has like 60 legal jobs opening up a year for all 200 kids of stetson + UF/FSU and whoever else from any other school with contacts who wants one.
Traffic tickets. Intern/work for a traffic ticket lawyer for a year and open up your own shop.
Very hard and unrealistic as possible, but it's the only way I see somebody making something decent out of it.
Other than that... FIU does have a pretty huge engineering college in comparison to the rest of the school (Social Science is the biggest dept.) - so for somebody who needs to become a patent lawyer or something of the sort midcareer as a rubberstamp, 30k isn't too shabby.
Personally, I think that's why the school exists - midcareer. Hell, some of our academics are going there because it's so cheap.
