Cardozo is highly ranked in IP, I believe they're #1 in NY.
I'll be damned http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/intellectual-property-law-rankings  but http://www.sciencetolaw.com/beware-the-ip-law-rankings/

Cornell is also top tier, and is in tri-state.

As is Yale...


Are they really? Penn is way close than Cornell and 20 minutes further than Yale, is it also in the tri-state area?

I'd advise against Cornell FWIHear.

When a Jew asks for tri-state area I assume they mean near NYC. That said Commute to school is probably what they are interested in. I know a 2L at Penn who lives in Manhattan and commutes for class.

nothing for sure...lol.

just interested in looking into options. I dont need a top school really. just something that I can hack. only reason why im looking into patent is bec its a subject that interests me.

Does anyone know if most classes can be done online?
If you want to get a job and earn money, I don't think online is a good idea, and going to a good school would be a good idea. If it is an interest and you aren't worried about money/ obtaining a job then alternative means can be an option.

So much wrong with that statement. For starters it's known that you don't learn how to practice as an attorney in law school.

And as regards ranking in IP, standard TLS wisdom is that those rankings are irrelevant. If you need proof, just log onto the firm bios at any of the top NYC firms, and see where the IP associates hired in the past 4 years went to school. It wasn't cardozo--it was harvard, columbia, NYU, and other national schools.

There is a lot of talk about redoing the law school system to include internships and continuing to lengthen the bar exam to including being able to actually know how to practise instead of just knowing theory.

So get under the wire before they start adding even more stuff to the school mandates and the tests...

There is a lot of talk
FTFY

You can add a lot of talk of making law school 2 years, so better wait till it's just 2 years.

Nothing will change. Law schools are a cash cow. Simple as that. No one is gonna kill the cow

Exactly why it depends on the school, from an investment standpoint.

Top schools the majority of the class is making $160,000 first year out. That can justify $200,000 debt. But a lower school the average student doesn't even find a job as a lawyer and has $100,000 debt.

See earlier in this thread a link to school employment and salary stats.
