Single Sex Law Schools?

Single Sex Law Schools?
« on: April 24, 2005, 12:34:25 AM »
I'm very much a rookie but I am interested in pursuing law, and am currently going into the Air Force in about a month. Does anyone know if there are any girls only law schools? I'm doing an argumentative paper on single sex education, and you wouldn't believe how much better the students do because girls/boys learn differently. I think it would be a good alternative for me...


I doubt one exists, but it's not a bad idea eh...

No there aren't any--probably b/c 1) there's a theory that (right or wrong) there is a way law should be taught to everyone (socratic method), 2) law school doesn't have the history of undergrad institutions (building a girls school next to a boys school to act basically as a finishing school, even though obviously that's not what the girls schools act as now) and 3) If you're entering the legal profession you are entering a field where men dominate the higher levels (ie most partners are men) so you have to learn to play their game if you think there is some seperate way to play the game as a woman.
