Top 10 Mormon Law Schools
« on: August 01, 2008, 07:37:20 PM »
FYI www.mormonlawyers.com announced the top ten most "Mormon friendly" law schools in the country. The article is very interesting.

The prestige points are funny.

What about BYU, is that just a given?

edit: First, it is a given that BYU’s law school would be considered the most Mormon friendly law school each year

Sweet, I go to a T10!

But the Mormons must keep them selves under wraps. I've never met someone who identified themselves as such here.

Somehow, I knew that ASU and UNLV would be up there.  Both VERY Mormon areas.  ASU even has an LDS church on campus which is, IIRC, close to the law school.

They're supposedly based on USNews, but GW/ASU doesn't make any sense.

Maybe they got USNews mixed up with LSD's bracket, which voted ASU into the T14 :D.

Posted the day before the results were released:

It is very important to note that neither law school from Utah was considered in this ranking. The reason is two-fold: First, it is a given that BYU’s law school would be considered the most Mormon friendly law school each year. Secondly, if we were to remove BYU from the ranking of most Mormon friendly law schools in the country, the University of Utah would then become the number one ranked most Mormon friendly law school in the country and we just couldn't let the University of Utah be rankied number one so we decided to remove both schools from the running.

I'm surprised Hawaii didn't make the list. Terrible cost of living, but a huge Mormon population and a ton of temples.

Maybe they want to keep all the genes real close together.

Why does ASU have so many more prestige points than GW?
