chapman, like UNLV, is a farily new law school. however, unlike UNLV (the only law school in vegas), the competition chapman faces is high. this being said, it's pretty remarkable that chapman is accredited within a pretty short time. i was told the reason chapman is tier 4 this year is because while they over-enrolled last year, they didn't bother to hire new professors. as a result of this, most of the classes are filled and the rumor is some students even have to sit on the floor. but i guess if there are that many students enrolling in this school (instead of all other CA schools, taken they were accepted), the school shouldn't be that bad after all.
chapman is near disneyland, but i guess most law students don't have time to go there. south coast plaza is near there if you are into shopping. the block is nearby, which is a popular hang out place for UCI and CAL F students. if you are into sports, the edison field (or stadium) is near there as well.
