I was hoping that someone could share with me some insight into the strengths and weaknesses of these two schools.

I know I want to stay in Arkansas for the foreseeable future, so those were the only two schools I seriously considered.  I currently work in Little Rock and know that lots of lawyers in the city went to both schools, so there are plenty of alumni from them to  make contacts with. Also, they both have good bar passage rates (I think UALR's is better) and they're both CHEAP.  I think they're both located in great places, but as a native Arkansan, I might be a little biased.  On the negative side, neither is ranked super-high, so you obviously couldn't go from UALR or U of A to working at a huge New York firm or anything.  However, if you want to stay in AR, they both seem to be good choices.
