what about the job market?

Surprisingly hard to get into out-of-state, from what I saw on LSN last year.. They also own Hawaii's legal market, but that market doesn't pay very well.

As someone from HI and familiar with the legal market--if you decide to go to UH, you should be sure that you want to practice in Hawaii, at least for awhile, because it's a very regional law school. If you've never set foot in HI before but attend UH, any law firm in the state will happily consider you so long as you indicate some sort of intent to remain a part of the Hawaii community. As for the pay: it is substantially lower than most of the larger legal markets and the cost of living is horrendous.
