Cardozo

4.0 of 5 stars

July 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Faculty is excellent with a diverse choice of classes. Great location for school.

Downers

Building itself is kind of eh. Not well known outside of NYC area.

Comments

Great education though I think it is best for someone looking to stay in the area.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Solid experience

5.0 of 5 stars

January 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

There is a large variety of classes and instructors as well as extra-curricular activities. School is also generous with financial aid.

Downers

It's strength is still not backed up by the cache that it deserves.

Comments

It's definitely worth considering and has something for everyone looking for a legal career.

Would You Recommend

Yes

LLM Program in IP

4.0 of 5 stars

March 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great faculty, increasing name recognition for Fashion/Arts/Media/Entertainment practices in New York City and beyond.

Downers

Career placement services were lackluster, and didn't offer much assistance for LLM students. Less of a community feel due to lack of student housing options.

Comments

This program provides a great opportunity for students to learn more about intellectual property and make connections in sought after practice fields. Just don't pay sticker price for it.

Would You Recommend

Yes

4.0 of 5 stars

February 2016 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

The professors are all Harvard-caliber. Cardozo has a strong group of young, bright, professors that truly take an interest in the students and enhance the school's culture.

Downers

Many professors are old and out of touch. While they have impressive resumes, they lack any ability to teach.

Comments

It's a good school with a fun and comfortable environment. If you are a go-getter and are ready to put yourself out there and make connections, Cardozo will be a good fit. If you are not, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Cardozo Law School

4.0 of 5 stars

September 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Good opportunities for scholarships
Students are generally pretty nice
Location is great

Downers

May students (essentially part-time) are at an extreme advantage but are on the same curve as full-time students
The school will give extra time on exams to just about anyone who asks- many students get time and a half for a "learning disability" then end up in the top 10%

Comments

Network and get to know your professors early. You will have to put in work if you want to get a good job.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great School

4.0 of 5 stars

July 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Faculty, classmates, clinical opportunities, location, externernship opportunities, the building, events

Downers

Like any law school, it's competitive. Only about the top 10% get into biglaw, but most people seem to land on their feet.

Comments

Hustle hard your first year, read every case, brief every case. By years 2-3 you can start relaxing.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great School + Environment But Enough With the Tenured Professors Already!

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Student body is amazing (seriously, you hear stories from local law students about how pages are ripped out of textbooks, the environment is overwhelmingly cutthroat, etc. but students here are EAGER to offer assistance and provide notes if you miss class),
Staff is very friendly,
Generous with merit scholarships,
Ideal location, (everything from the Public Interest Fair a few blocks away, to OCIs that many reputable firms attend)

Downers

The tenured professors are some of the worst professors I have ever had, staff struggles with publicizing events (IE writing competition guidelines and clinic programs), slow elevators

Comments

You will love the location and student body, I guarantee it!

Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent educational opportunities and supportive administration

5.0 of 5 stars

Uppers

super supportive administration that is sensitive to individual student needs

Downers

could not get into major classes that I wanted to take

Comments

this school has a lot to offer if you seek it out

Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing Law School Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

All of my peers were incredibly nice. You will not find anyone ripping pages out of library books -- rather, you will find people sharing pages of their notes with you without having to ask!

Downers

The elevators are slow. Seriously, I can't think of anything besides that. I loved my time at Cardozo and would not trade it for anything in the world.

Comments

The school has a very strong intellectual property program, and a majority of the students are there for intellectual property law.

Would You Recommend

Yes
