"SLU Law is a great school with a lot of caring people that are there to help and support you. The new building is great! I love that the parking garage is in the building. All of my classes are in the same building. It helps keep me safe and helps save time. I am a quiet person, and usually keep to myself. The faculty see that and still make me feel welcomed and cared for."

"I am pursuing two graduate programs: one in law and one in health administration. The programs do not always work well together in terms of scheduling classes, making for some really long days with constant back-to-back classes. Additionally, my health administration program--though it is a well established program--does not cultivate and maintain its alumni network as best as it could, sometimes making the process of finding connections with alumni difficult. On the flip side, however, the law school career services staff are spectacular, and are more than able to make connections with prior dual-degree alums, which makes up for some of the difference in the other program. I do think that--while I sometimes have reservations about both programs--the combination of both degrees will make me better capable to achieve the career I want in hospital administration."

"The network (I was told) was the best in the area and can/will succeed in helping to gain employment in the metro area. The biggest drawback is tuition and tuition assistance. I am a full time student with a husband and son. I am not a young adult still living with my parents- I have a family to help support! There are virtually no options for those of us who have other bills to pay and cannot live off of daddy'd dime."

"The move from the main campus to downtown has re-energized the entire SLU Law operation. With new facilities and a revitalized focus, SLU Law should become a force to be reckoned with in the mid-western legal community."

"Pros- the faculty really cares about the subjects and the students and present difficult subjects in easy to understand ways. Cons- not really so far outside"

"I am in my first year of Law School at SLU and so far have really enjoyed the experience. I know SLU is not ranked very highly on the "magic" US News & World Reports ranking system, but I chose to attend for their #1 Health Law Program and for the great scholarship opportunity. I was awarded entry to and visited other schools, many in the Top 50, a few in the Top 20, and still chose SLU for the warmness of the faculty and students and their sincere interests in advancing the career of health law. I think if you want to practice in Missouri or the surrounding area, SLU has a very good local reputation, perhaps even better than that of Washington University, the local Top 20 school. I wouldn't recommend it for people who eventually want to move out of the area or practice in a field other than health law, where SLU's network really shines. I can't compare it to any other law school because I haven't attended any other schools; however, I think the education I have received so far has been top notch and if SLU is having some internal problems in their E-suite, it really doesn't affect student life. There are plenty of drinking and partying opportunities if you are into that kind of stuff. I would like to see more student activities that DON'T involve getting stupid drunk; the student "clubs" don't really seem to do much in the way of actually networking or advancing our legal skills. Nonetheless, I would recommend SLU to anybody who was interested."
