Law School Discussion

Is BYU's J. Reuben Clark Really Better than Yeshiva's Cardozo Law School?

There is a really interesting article at www.mormonlawyers.com looking at which law school is better. BYU wins is it just because there are so many Mormons in the legal community?

The entire comparison makes no sense. 

Cardozo does not serve the same purpose in the Jewish legal community as does BYU the Mormon.

How is that relevant to the objective quality of the schools? 

It's not.

It's just pointless to compare the schools on the implicit assumptions that they represent their respective religious communities. Apples to oranges.

I'd say yes because BYU will go a lot further in Utah and the surrounding states than Cardozo will in New York and the surrounding states, if nothing else. I know, two different worlds, but I think how well a school does on its home turf should be an indication of something.
