Location is the school's biggest asset. Proximity to courts, law firms, and wall street is a huge plus. Plenty of opportunities to network w/ lawyers and judges, and possibly do interships/externships during school.
But the real question is whether this will actually lead to jobs after graduating. The school's reputation and cost also need to be considered.
I'm trying to decide between NYLS full time or Seton Hall part time evening. I have visited both, and was impressed with both. SHU is ranked higher, but commuting to Jersey from long island will be miserable (I will be living on LI for just my first year). Hopefully I will make up my mind in the next few days.
I agree.. the location is amazing! I know the cost of the school is high but i imagine its due to the recent renovations and possibly bc the high cost of nyc..but yeah it is high comparably. But really i dont mind the cost as long as i can find a loan to add it to. I think im pretty much sold on this one.. unless employment prospects are bad for graduates or theres something that is just awful that i havent found out yet. Otherwise, i think i have a very good chance of getting in and being able to eventually practice law.
Good luck to you too! SHU is good too.. i believe the availability of a joint degree in international affairs would suggest they have a strong concentration in international law if that is of any interest to you.
