Great Law School, Small class sizes, good clinic options

5.0 of 5 stars

May 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

I loved the size of the school and classes - there is a real opportunity to get to know your classmates and teachers well. I also found the emphasis on clinical teaching to be an asset, and encourage all students to take advantage of it.

Downers

Small school comes with a certain level of snootiness - makes it harder sometimes to find people you genuinely can connect with.

Comments

I don't think you can go wrong choosing Stanford. The name can very much carry you far in your career, and there is a good alumni database as well.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great environment, strong academics

Uppers

People here are friendly, professors are accessible, students are very intelligent. I love being able to take classes at other schools as well.

Downers

There is still a high level of competition. And everything at Stanford expensive. What I like the least about it, however, is that Stanford/Palo Alto is like a "bubble", very small, not much to do.

Comments

I would definitely recommend buying a bike. It's the easiest way to get around on campus.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great for Intellectual Property

Has some stellar IP faculty - Mark Lemley and Paul Goldstein to name a few.

Downers

For a school known for its IP curriculum, it has a limited number of IP related courses for offer. Columbia Law School, for instance, seems to have a lot more practitioners offer courses than at SLS.

Comments

Best campus ever! The small class size really makes a huge difference. You'll actually get to know your classmates and will actually like them!

Would You Recommend

Yes

2010 | VERIFIED STUDENT

Quality of Life

Unparalleled. I think there's really no context in deciding between Stanford and Harvar or anywhere else. The decision is a lifestyle choice between whether you'll be more happy at Yale or Stanford. Visit both, and decide where you feel most comfortable.

Admissions

Excellent financial aid, convinced me to come across the country. In admissions, there's clearly more of a focus on the whole individual rather than simply numbers. Rightly, I think, Dean Deal's office looks for people who will go on to lead the legal profession, even if their LSAT isn't stratospheric. This may have cost them some ground in the U.S. News rankings the last couple years, but it's a well-conceived long-term strategy. It also ensures that the student body is full of interesting people.
