I would not go to law school if my only choice were Widener.

Hofstra U School of Law / Hofstra falls 113th in US News
« on: May 12, 2013, 05:25:35 PM »
Hofstra has fallen from 89th to 113th in the 2014 US News & World Report Law School Rankings. Don't be surprised if Hofstra falls further next year as existing students transfer and potential applicants go elsewhere.

The Faculty Lounge has the Class of 2012 ABA Employment Report cleaned of law school funded jobs here  It ranks 201 law schools.

I would go with Cardozo especially if you want to work in NYC.

Brooklyn is your best choice. Like the guy said above don't waste your time with Hofstra. Also look here

The job prospects graduating from Hofstra are not very good. If that is the only place you got in, I wouldn't go to law school.  Also look here

New York Law School / New Skills Courses at NYLS
« on: July 11, 2011, 08:24:15 PM »
From the Wall Street Journal at

"Looking to attract employers' attention, some law schools are throwing out decades of tradition by replacing textbook courses with classes that teach more practical skills."

"New York Law School hired 15 new faculty members over the past two years, many directly from the ranks of working lawyers, to teach skills in negotiation, counseling and fact investigation. The school says it normally hires one or two new faculty a year, and usually those focused on legal research."

St. John's U Law School / St. John's

I just graduated from St. John's, and I highly recommend it.  The faculty is good, and the administration is responsive to student needs.  Also I love their building.  Two of my friends went to Hofstra and another to CUNY, and they were very unhappy.
