Chapman Law School
« on: September 13, 2011, 08:01:17 PM »
Hey does anyone have any insight into the Chapman Law School in California. I knew its a relatively young school but it is ranked tier 2 and top 100 law schools. I have been considering entertainment law and I know they have a pretty extensive program but I don't know anything more than the information they sent/their website.
Any additional information would be very appreciated.
Thanks

As a general rule, planing on practicing entertainment law from any law school (save perhaps Harvard/Yale/Stanford) without any contacts in the industry is a fool's errand. The quality of the educational program is irrelevant if it does not lead to a job in the field.

Do you want to be a lawyer or an entertainment lawyer? If only the latter, I would reconsider.

Its a mixed bag.. I am about to finish undergrad but from what I have done I really like trial advocacy. But it was always a passion of mine to get into the entertainment industry and I actually do have a considerable amount of connections that route.
Whats I'm really concerned about is the overall credibility/perception of Chapman and how the students like the school.
