Stand-Alone Law Schools

Postby justonemoregame » Mon Jan 28, 2013 6:59 pm

Anyone have a handy list of unaffiliated ABA accredited law schools? What's the most efficient way of compiling such a list? Are all publics affiliated with a parent university?

.....why? So you can pay private school prices to attend a school without the backing of a university's facilities and endowment?

There certainly aren't any good ones.

ETA: Brooklyn, William-Mitchell and a bunch of TTT/TTTT?

Because someone, somewhere will be giving odds on which schools will be first to close, and I don't want to throw my money down the drain.

Does UC Hastings count? That may be by far the best one.

UC Hastings is semi-unaffiliated. There's no undergrads and its administration is mostly independent of the UC Regents.

It's not a TTT yet, but it may be headed down that route. However I do think Dean Wu is ahead of the curve when it comes to reforming legal education.

Vermont Law School is buying out some of its faculty. (I know lovely people who went there and are happily employed, but I thought I'd toss it out there.)

I've read Catholic may be doing something similar. Any others?

I really, really hope that Florida Coastal closes. It's the lowest of the bottom-feeding, for-profit TTT's.

Well, Florida Coastal may have to compete with a new school in Daytona soon :? although there's been a setback

Someone should enjoin this thing now. The lawsuit would go up in flames, but the bad press would also probably kill the school. Who would have standing? Come up with a bullshit arg. and get it in the courts/papers.
