Behind CLS, NYU, and Fordham, Brooklyn Law School comes in 4th in terms of NYC job placements. Does anyone know what specialization Brooklyn is good at? They do not have any specialization ranked. Brooklyn seems to be one of those general law schools who benefit because of its location and not because of any one outstanding program.
I wouldn't be so sure Brooklyn places better than Cardozo.
I think Brooklyn places better than Cardozo because Brooklyn has been around longer and has more alumni connections, Cardozo's first class was in 1986.
Cardozo's first class was actually 1979, but Brooklyn is still certainly a lot older. They are both decent city schools. They both have great student bodies because many good students are willing to attend a lower ranked school just so they can be near NYC. Cardozo might have a slight edge because of the support it gets from Yeshiva.
