Louisville seems like a good option. It has a very similar vibe to San Francisco, but is more conservative and less expensive.
Or Atlanta.
I think Minneapolis would work. Liberal, yes, but in a "different' way than some places, and very religious though tolerant of those who don't go to church.

I thought Seattle was pretty liberal and definitely not so church-going. I've only been there once and couldn't really get a feel for it. But I know neighboring Portland really well and I KNOW he would go insane in Portland.

Just out of curiosity - is your friend looking at major cities only? I'd think that many college towns, especially those in relatively conservative areas, might fit the description well.

This threads reeks of flame.

If your "friend" is looking at law school, should not s/he be looking at getting into certain schools? The schools one can get into or not largely dictates where one should be looking to go to school.

The cities on your list have a diverse range of law schools ranking from the very best to solid to barely accredited. This matters.

It would make more sense for your "friend" to give us an idea of what type of school s/he can get into, what type of law s/he wants to practice, and what region (generally).

I don't know, dude. This is the list of cities he gave me. The schools he can get into are in these cities. He's got great LSATs so that gives him a lot more flexibility in choosing schools. And he wants to stay in the market in which he goes to school....thus why the cities matter so much to him. He doesn't want to be out in the sticks away from the majority of good law jobs. I don't know why it reeks of flame--whatever that means. lol. I'm just looking for the sort of advice I'm wasn't able to give him....

By the way....Seattle? Really?

It's good that he's choosing a law school according to where he wants to work, but he should do that with due caution.

Like I hinted at earlier, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to attend a barely accredited law school in a city he wants to live in when he can get into a much finer school elsewhere. There is a good deal of leeway on whether to attend the "best" school hecan get into or whether he should attend the "best" school in the area he wants to work. This is not an easy decision, nor is there a real fine rubric by which to base his decision.

However I will repeat that there is a great discrepancy between the law schools in the cities he's selected, and he would be wise to choose the best school he can get into in the cities he wants to live in (and the emphasis should be on best school).

At first I was shocked that Connecticut wasn't mentioned, but then I reread the title. Sub chinos and cowboy boots with a Lacoste sweater and birkenstocks, then you have Connecticut!

The Congressional bathrooms. A lot of foot-tapping and other kinds of tapping goes on there.
