HLS has a reputation for having a fiercely competitive atmosphere--most famously depicted in the 1973 film, The Paper Chase--though students in Vault's surveys say that those accounts are mostly overstated. Classes at HLS are heavy in theory and light on nuts-and-bolts skills, and the school offers a broad scope of concentrations. As for employment prospects, HLS students are heavily recruited, particularly in the Boston area, but the name carries weight all over the country. On-campus housing is available to all law students, and most use it for the first year or two.
