All the law school facilities are great. I sat in on a class and it was really interesting. I also used Hotwire to book a hotel downtown. I got a 3.5 star for $65, $80 with tax and it ended up being the Hilton downtown. Hotwire is a great website and I've never had a bad Portland hotel when using the site.
Yes, I agree. I was there for the animal law conference in October. The school is like a fairy wonderland in the middle of an enchanted forest. The law library is nearly all glass and surrounded by gorgeous trees, which you see from all the windows. They have one room or building there that's like a round tower, nearly all glass and very tall, filled with a bunch of couches and other furniture and with law books lining the walls. You walk out of the door right into hiking trails.
Also, I sat in on a civ pro class, which has become my "benchmark" for the quality of a school. I'd previously sat in on the civ pro classes at Boalt, Golden Gate, and USF in Bay Area. USF's was pretty good but I'd have to say L&C's was the best. Of course, this is not necessarily saying much, because it's also the luck of the draw - which particular prof is teaching, what subject they're on, etc..
