Academics

A very solid grounding in the traditional core law subjects using the Socratic method in relatively small classes. Great opportunities for moot court participation.

Quality of Life

I rented a small apartment near campus and concentrated on my studies.

Academics

Classes are small even in the first year. Many professor employ the Socratic method. Academic Advising is offered to all students and required for students below 2.5. The law school has an outstanding skills program offering students the opportunity to participate in several skills competitions or mock trials.

Quality of Life

Cost of living is great for our city. We're a top ten city with great housing and dining. Once people move to Louisville, they don't leave.

Academics

Just like anywhere, there are some professors that are better presenters than the next one; but that's style over substance. All profs seemed to know their subjects well enough to stand behind the podium.
Coming from an engineering background, I wish the classes had a bit more of a practical quality to them. I understand however, that Brandeis Law School at UofL has now instituted a real world clinic to teach students and to help those inthe community.
Our school tried to begin a track for Trademark, Patent, and Copyright law that proved appealing to myself and others.
Overall, workload and grading for the classes seemed about right. Trial practice classes were good for real world experience.
Moot court opportunities seemed to be a big deal. Publication/Marketing of these types of outside the classroom needs to be better emphasized especially to students who do not have a family history of legal beagals and therefore know not how these types of opportunities can affect one's career until its too late.
On that note, the career services office seemed to be sorely, sorely lacking. Yes, they had contact with local firms, but it seemed to be more student self-directed than the school being heavily in touch with the legal community and helping "ALL" students find positions that suited them.

Quality of Life

Cost for UofL campus or off-campus living for students is low and amenities in the area are plentiful. It was/is a good experience for a suburban university- town is big enough to fulfill most people, and yet small enough to give a hometown feel.
