Party Hard at an Elite Law School
The top ranked party law school according this very important law school ranking study is the University of Arizona. TaxProf Blog has done a great service to law school applicants by cross referencing the party law school ranking to the U.S. News Law School ranking here to provide very useful information to law school applicants who want to attend a highly ranked school by both. By the party-hard-at-a-top-ranked US News metric, the best schools appear to be UC-Berkeley, Michigan and Harvard. Sorry Yale. Looks like the best thing to do is acquire residency status in California or Michigan for a 2-fer.
Of course, once the party is over, the job search begins. See TaxProf Blog's Did 16 Law Schools Commit Rankings Malpractice? about employment data supplied by law schools and employment data assumptions made by US News for the the 74 schools that did not supply U.S. News with the percentage of the class employed at graduation.
