What type of law do you want to practice? Where do you want to live?
As of now I am thinking that I want to study international law, but that is more a guess. Both schools have international law programs. As of now I do not really have a major preference on where I want to live. I have visited St. Louis twice and really like it and am visiting Denver this weekend. I guess there is more to offer in Denver but I am not sure.
You are right, both of those schools have decent international law programs. Not top 10, but close. St. Louis has a gorgeous old-school building, but Denver recently moved into a brand-new facility, as Matthies just described. Other than that, both schools are similar. St. Louis is probably a little more competitive, academically speaking. It also seems to have slightly better employment stats, a lower student to teacher ratio, a bigger library. But the difference is really not that substantial. Plus, Denver might be expensive, but it's definitely a few thousand cheaper than St. Louis. I think it's interesting to note that, according to LSAC, nearly 80% of Denver grads end up working in Colorado, whereas only 26% of St. Louis grads stay in their state. If that isn't an error, I think that's something you should consider. However, grads in were employed in roughly the same number of states from both schools (30 states for Denver, 32 for St. Louis). But it seems like St. Louis places more people abroad (Denver sent 1 abroad, St. Louis sent 5).
If it was my decision, I probably would go to St. Louis. However, the difference is not that great. Denver is a great place to study international law. And if you have family in Denver and you like Denver, well, you should definitely go to Denver.
