The 30 Most Fun Law Schools

Online Paralegal Programs, 30 Law Schools With The Most To Do For Fun:

Law schools in the United States have long been considered among the world’s finest – and perhaps most well situated – offering top-class training amid exciting cities and stunning scenery. What’s more, although the 21st century has undoubtedly brought a wealth of online opportunities in legal and paralegal training, a more in-person experience that caters to students’ educational needs and personal interests can be especially rewarding. Finding the right school, however, may be a challenge.

Here are 30 law schools that meet all tastes, opening doors to everything from vibrant metropolises and college towns known for live music, sports and cuisine, to picturesque campuses within easy reach of the great outdoors. [See methodology here.] ...

The Top 10 are:

  1. Colorado
  2. San Diego
  3. UC-Berkeley
  4. Cornell
  5. Georgia
  6. Florida
  7. Chicago
  8. Northwestern
  9. Pepperdine
  10. Hawaii

Here is the description of #9 Pepperdine:

Located in an area that has what A Luxury Travel Blog calls “the most perfect weather on the planet,” Pepperdine University School of Law ought to appeal to those looking to complete their studies in one of California’s most spectacular beach communities. The school’s position on the university’s main Malibu campus affords tantalizing views of legendary surf spot First Point, while Pepperdine students also have easy access to the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Meanwhile, fine dining and hip nightlife can be found amid Malibu’s affluent, celebrity-infused community of around 12,600 residents; the various beach bars and restaurants lining the Pacific Coast Highway are great starting points. According to U.S. News & World Report, the school itself boasts the top-ranked dispute resolution program in the country, and in addition it offers notable entertainment law teaching.

I am unfamiliar with the "hip nightlife"—but otherwise everything else rings true. (Hat Tip: Above the Law.)

1) A law school fun time ranking by a thing called "Online Paralegal Programs?"

2) The description for BU Law is entirely just about how fun Boston is, which does make one wonder why the other four law schools in Boston didn't make the list.

Again--so strange these "lists" are getting re-attention. It is from 2014...in all other respects, of course, the methodology is beyond reproach.

Sorry, but "fun" doesn't belong in the same sentence with "law school." Fun and physics, yes. Fun and law, no.
