An interesting discussion on choosing law schools.

Over at Above the Law (here).  From our point of view, the best school for you isn't about which one's higher in the rankings.  The best one's the one that will (1) get you to where you want to be, if you know (neither of us knew what we wanted to do with our law degrees when we were choosing among schools); and (2) give you a great education with the least debt load possible.

Before this year's USNWR rankings come out.

Read this post (here) on the Legal Profession Blog by Professors Bill Henderson and Andy Morriss, who are two of my favorite thinkers on the topic of legal education and the profession.  They're right:  if we lie about our employment statistics in order to lure more students to our schools, that's a horrible lesson to teach those students once they realize that they've been hoodwinked (or even if they weren't hoodwinked).  Lying to potential law students opens the door for them to justify letting their clients lie to the public later on in life.
