I wish we took conlaw in 1L year. I go back and forth on this but right now I'm kinda annoyed to be taking a fundamental class in the last quarter of 2L year (!)
I like Hyde Park a lot for the most part, and the food here has gotten a lot better, but I wish there were more decent bars. The dive bars are good dive bars but sometimes you just want a bar that is slightly

The school is small, which I usually love, but right now I have a cold and I don't want to see a million people I know all the time because I just want to have a headache and sleep. How much you like the size of the school is very personality-specific.
There are only 3 journals. Some people who want a journal won't get one, and that sucks.
I wish we had more permanent business / corporate law faculty. We have a lot of good adjuncts and clinical faculty, but I would love it if we had one more permanent person to regularly teach securities regulation etc.
