If this helps kill that hostage, I'm not interested in Public Sector. However I am interested in Intellectual Property (Boalt is #1). So maybe that just complicates matters.
Boalt IS a public service school. Much more so than Haravard or any other school in the top 14. Those people who are interested in public service gravitate towards Boalt because of the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program -- the only one of its kind.
Law is a prestige driven profession, and the Harvard name will take one far in the realm of BIGLAW, but Boalt is clearly the better choice for public service.
Don't choose based on IP. It's not like Harvard has a bunch of losers and Boalt has all-stars. Firms care less about specialties than they do about general law school prestige. Oh yeah don't go into IP, it sucks.
