Try the University of Denver. You can google for ratings on this. I kinda doubt there are very many law students on here but I could be wrong.

There is no law school at UC-Denver. It is at the University of Denver. bouldergranola is an attorney. She has posted that most law firms around here hire graduates of DU and CU.

Denver University (DU) and CU-Boulder are the only law schools in CO.
DU is a private school -- expensive but many scholarship opportunities depending on your LSAT scores, etc. It is a solid school with a good reputation.
DU has a full time day program and also has a part time program at night.
CU is I believe either Tier one or near the top of Tier Two--harder to get into and very well regarded. Less expensive than DU if you can get in.....you need to do really well on the LSAT to even be considered.

Hi
I donít have much idea about both the colleges but I have found one site from altavista, visit http://www.pashalaw.com/web/componen...ard/Itemid,28/ (broken link)

I hope this will help you in selecting the best one.
Good Luck!

CU has a beautiful new building. They had a major accreditation scare a few years ago, because the physical plant was so out of date. The school is well respected, ranked somewhere in the 30s by US News & World Report, and has excellent programs for environmental law and natural resource law.

We basically have three, DU, CU or Wyoming around the area. It depends what your looking for, you prob need a LSAT of over 160 to get into CU, your looking at spending $50,000 a year at DU and Wyoming is a lil farther north, cheaper but as for ranking prob not as good as DU or CU. I'd go with CU if you can get in and you like the atmosphere at CU. Hope this helps.

CU hands down. I've worked in law firms for the past 10 years and they all tend to lean towards CU. DU is sort of joked about. Although they have a state of the art campus/library/staff, I still think CU is more respected. You only have two choices for Colorado.
