Hello I need help! I want to go into either child advocacy law or criminal law and I want to know if anyone knows of any good schools with great programs for either of these majors?
1. There are no "majors" in law school. Just a JD.
2. Any school will teach you enough to go into child advocacy law or criminal law.
3. Do not believe the self-rankings of schools regarding their programs; with a very few exceptions (such as tax law, which you need an LLM for anyway) it doesn't matter at all. Certainly not for those areas.
4. Go to the school the you like, that is the least expensive, in the geographic area that you believe you will practice.
Finally, good luck. Those are two fields that I could never practice in. It's not the law - it's the facts, if you know what I mean.
