5.0 of 5 stars

March 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great classes, great professors, and a fantastic atmosphere to learn in.

Downers

Not a particularly strong networking school. Does not have political cache.

Comments

This is a place to go if you want to put learning first.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best Public Law School in California

3.0 of 5 stars

February 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Admissions does a great job of admitting good people who are caring and focused on public interest. I didn't meet a nasty person in law school. The IP program is the best in the country.

Downers

The tenured professors are not interested in teaching. Facilities have been renovated, but still need lots of work.

Comments

Great school if you want to do IP and practice in California.

Would You Recommend

February 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Laid back, non-traditional grading, friendly professors, large variety of organizations

Downers

West coast focus, financial aid, and lack of administration leadership

Comments

Boalt has a strong reputation in IP and in the state of California with a relaxed classroom environment.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best Law School Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

October 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Fellow students were collegial, diverse, and interested in many things. The intellectual program and faculty cannot be beat. There is an Asian American Law Journal, which is only one of two in the nation focused on such subject matter.

Downers

It is expensive. There is a lack of conservatives among the people at the school, which can make it a bit too liberal-fest sometimes.

Comments

There are excellent opportunities after law school if you attend Boalt Hall. The alumni network is very supportive.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great culture

4.0 of 5 stars

September 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

students and administrators are wonderfully supportive of one another, great campus with a lot of recent improvements to the facility.

Downers

Lots of ongoing construction while I was there (since completed), can be a bit ideologically homogenous

Comments

Boalt benefits greatly from being attached to the larger university. You can cross-register of course, but even more important you can participate on sports teams or other student activities.

Would You Recommend

Yes

September 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

As far as law schools go, especially amongst the elite, Berkeley is the best place to find a collegial non-competitive environment amongst people with incredible skills and abilities

Downers

It's very liberal, so if that's not a place you'll be comfortable it may be smart to avoid

Comments

It's an amazing location and an amazing school. Why not Cal?

Would You Recommend
