The Real Ten Best Law Schools

There is a humorous article  written by Brandt Goldstein. It describes the law schools in lighter vein. Says the article:

The rankings are founded on a ridiculously narrow idea of what a “good” law school is. In all honesty, what really determines which institution you choose as a place of study for three years and an alma mater for the rest of your life? I’m not sure I can name all the factors, but I know this: the number of books in the law library (factored in by the U.S. News ranking) did not help me decide whether to check the “accept” box. How many books can you read in law school, for crying out loud? In fact, how many law-related books do you want to read? Four? Two?

So I ask: What about the things we really care about? What about the attractiveness of our future classmates? What about beach front property? What about sex? People, it’s time for a different ranking. So here’s my own list of the Top Ten law schools. It’s arbitrary. Its capricious. And its a lot more accurate and useful than anything you’re going to find in print.

The author describes the following law schools with a caution from the editor that it is all in humor and not meant to be taken seriously.

10.University of Colorado at Boulder

9.University of Miami, Florida

8.The University of Minnesota

7.Duke (tie)

7.North Carolina (tie)

5. Michigan-Ann Arbor

4. Harvard


2.Concord Law School. Torts and contracts, Internet-style.
