As someone interested in Conlaw, I find it kind of insulting that you just dismissed two of the biggest heavyweights in the field simply because the field isn't "new".

Goodnight, I'm going to do my laundry and dread trying to make it out of jury duty in time to catch my flight tomorrow.  :-\

Curious: OP, what's so annoying about Yale's grading system?

So can I kill you now?
I am actually feeling pretty good today, so if you wouldn't mind holding off until next week, I would appreciate it.

Well, I was half-joking, but I don't care for the pass, high-pass, etc.  I think every school should go with the traditional letter grades and rank the class.

lol.


Yale is the best law school.


The rest are debatable. 8)

Thanks USNWR.

Right, because only USNWR considers Yale the best. Its pretty much universal.

There might be some debate about S>H or H>Y or whether Chicago belongs in the top 5 etc.

Saying "Yale is the best law school. The rest are debatable" is pretty childish and I hope you were kidding/being sarcastic. Before you say Yale is the best law school you should first ask "best for what?" rather than just spitting out the USNWR ranking. Best for academia, clerkships, and public interest, of course, but the rest is up for debate.

is it childish?  Yale is the best law school :)


of course I'm biased. ;)

Actually, I think Stanford is the best now followed by Harvard. Any school with you gets dropped a couple of spots. Sorry.
