The country has never been more divided politically, and whether they’re strongly in favor of or adamantly opposed to President Trump’s policies, people have been inspired to go to law school to somehow “save America.”
As our readers know, the latest Princeton Review law school rankings are out, and today, we’ll be focusing on what are perhaps the most important rankings of them all: the law schools with the most conservative students and the law schools with the most liberal students. During these times of political division and strife, why not attend a law school where there’s a high likelihood that your classmates will share your political ideology?
Which law schools do you think came out on top of these lists?
First, we’ll begin with the methodology Princeton Review used to determine which law schools had the most conservative and liberal students. A single question was asked of respondents to determine the political bent of each school’s student body: “If there is a prevailing political bent among students at your school, how would you characterize it?” Answer choices were: “Very Liberal, Liberal, Middle of the Road, Somewhat Conservative, Very Conservative.”
Per Princeton Review, these are the law schools where you can wear your MAGA hats with pride, otherwise known as the law schools with the most conservative students:
- Ave Maria School of Law School of Law
- Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark Law School
- Samford University Cumberland School of Law
- George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School
- Faulkner University Thomas Goode Jones School of Law
- University of Alabama School of Law
- Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center
- Mississippi College School of Law
- Pepperdine University School of Law
- University of Idaho School of Law
Note that the majority of these law schools are in Southern states. You can pwn those libs and discuss the latest witch hunt here. And always remember, NO QUID PRO QUO!
According to Princeton Review, these are the law schools where you’ll be able to plan how you’re going protect Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at all costs and stop the country from being ripped apart at the seams — the places that are also known as the law schools with the most liberal students:
- Northeastern University School of Law
- American University Washington College of Law
- University of Pennsylvania Law School
- University of Oregon School of Law
- University of Maryland School of Law
- Brooklyn Law School
- City University of New York School of Law
- State University of New York – Buffalo School of Law
- University of Colorado School of Law
- Vermont Law School
Note that the majority of these law schools are on either the East or West coasts, and one of them is a T14 institution. These damned liberal elites.
