Supposedly the best law school for animal law in country. Anyone have any experiences with either this school, or a similar program?

My son will be starting there at the end of the month as a freshman. I have no idea about the law school, but I thought the school's location was great. The school is in a big city, however, it is located in a wooded residential area giving it more of a rural feeling. So you get the best of both worlds, going to school in a quiet area while having all the benefits of a big city. The Law School is separated from the undergraduate campus so we didn't see it on the tour.

Size-wise, I think there are 2,500-3,000 students in both undergraduate and graduate programs, so class size is small, providing individual attention. Be prepared for wet weather there. It does rain and during the winter, the city can be shut down because of freezing rain. IMHO, the rainy days are worth tolerating because the sunny days are some of the best, but that can be said of much of the Pacific Northwest. Sorry I can't be much help on the Law program.

That's okay - I'm pretty confident about the program. Thanks for the location info!

The non-profit Animal League Defense Fund might be able to discuss programs with you.

Do you mean the Animal LEGAL Defense Fund?

In either case, thanks!
