I attended Miami Law School and specialized inQuite BrightPreLaw and Legal
I attended Miami Law School and specialized in taxation. Both the courses and the faculty were very good. I had some great jobs with both the government and with major accounting firms. I am now president of my own company making a very nice living.

Miami had not only a very good law school, but the facilities were fabulous. They had a great gym and swimming pool and a very fine library. Even the food in the cafeteria was pretty good, which is a marvel considering the usual quality of college food.

Socially,the school was outstanding! I have rarely seen as many beautiful people anywhere. Going to sports events is a real treat,not to be missed. The energy at football games was unbelievable.

There was also a great deal of diversity. It had a large latin population and many foreign students that added a lot of spice to the social scene.

The town of Miami was also a great place for a student with lots of good restaurants and fun things to do. Of course, the great weather didn't hurt.

Miami also has a very strong alumni base that helps with both job placement and in raising money for endowment. Many people don't realize that Miami has one of the fastest growing endowments in the nation.It is currently just shy of 1 billion dollars, which puts it in the top 60 best endowed schools in the nation. I should note that the endowment was only 472 million the year before. It, thus, doubled in one year! Thus, the university has a higher endowment than Syracuse, Tufts, Carnegie Mellon, Tulane and many other fine schools. Trust me: University of Miami is currently a great place and a real up and coming school.

I can only speak as a law schoolQuite BrightPreLaw and Legal
I can only speak as a law school graduate. Miami has a very good law school. It is top rated (top 10 among all law schools) in tax and estate planning,but some other specialties are very good.

Miami is the big fish in South Florida. This gives an edge to kids who want to work or intern in South Florida. The school gets a lot of support from Alumni in both cash and in job offers.

I thought that as a bright NY kid, I would have an easy time with the school and date some of the fabulously attractive undergraduates. Was I in for a surprise, The law school is a LOT of hard work. We really didn't have time for dating untill year 2 of law school. There were a lot of "get to gethers" with med school folks and other parties around. Social life was quite good starting in the second year.

Faculty, for the most part, were quite good and knowledgable. Many were in private practice and brought a good deal of practicality to the courses

I liked the on campus food. Maybe it's me. However, there were a lot of offcampus restaurants that were great. Miami doesn't suffer from a lack of varied or quality cuisine.

The library had the latest stuff and was well stocked. This is important for lawyers since a library to a lawyer is what a lab is to a scientist. It is very important.All in all, University of Miami Law School was great. I would recommend it to anyone interested in law.
