Culture at George Mason
« on: March 28, 2012, 12:05:00 PM »
I hear a lot about the conservative leanings of Gerge Mason Law.  Any insights from those who have attended?  Thanks!

I personally did not attend, but know several folks who did (being in the same metro area).  My understanding is the "conservative" nature of the school is more wrapped up in their embracing the "law and economics" theory, and running with it pretty much at every level they can (some have even complained about heavy handed it can be).  In contrast I'd have to say Catholic University (in the same metro area) is probably more conservative in terms of being socially conservative (at least on the faculty level), and at Mason, it's all about the money....but again, this is all second hand.
