CLS Review

4.0 of 5 stars

April 2015 | Former Student

Uppers

Job opportunities, elective program, support services, location, prestige, reputation, alumni network.

Downers

Competition, grade structure, lack of Latin honors/GPA, size of LLM class.

Comments

It will set you up perfectly for a job in big law, especially in NYC.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Sky's the Limit

5.0 of 5 stars

April 2015 | Former Student

Uppers

Great selection of courses, clinics, study abroad opportunities. I felt as if I could take my legal education in any direction I wanted.

Downers

Social atmosphere was a bit staid - very cliquish. However, the school is large enough that you can avoid the cliques if you try.

Comments

If you graduate from here, no matter where in the class, you'll be able to pursue whatever career you want. At the end of the day, that's why we go to a law school

Would You Recommend

Yes

Columbia Law School

5.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | Former Student

Uppers

Really great opportunities to connect with potential employers (law firms especially) and to do well in recruiting.

Downers

Large class; competitive. Professors not always great. Building/library not the best.

Comments

If you want to work in big law, especially in NYC, you should have no trouble if you go to CLS. Even if you have mediocre grades, you will still likely be able to get into a decent firm.

Would You Recommend
