Can anyone studying corporate and/or securities law give me any advice about the importance, or lack thereof, of attending a school in the state in which he or she wants to practice? I mean, is it mostly state law or federal law that one studies? If it's state law then I'm assuming that attending a school in a state in which you want to practice is extremely important... is that right?
I hope to serve as a part of a business' general counsel rather than in an actual firm. So, my thoughts up until now have been that the location of the law school is less important than, say, the ranking since there are so many businesses in various locations - who knows where one will end up.
I just want to get some opinions/thoughts.
