Best law school website?


Hedek

Prospective students are very fond of rankings, even ones with very debatable methodology. I'd like to start a new one: what is your favorite law school website?

Beyond simple cosmetics, this is a not-so-futile question. I've spent the past 6 months visiting and thoroughly reading many law school websites. And I suspect you have been too. As such, I think future prospective students could benefit from our experience.

Some websites are outright causes of headache. A select few, however, are actually enjoyable to navigate in, and, most of all, contain valuable information.

Of course, you have to visit the website of law schools you intend to apply to. But visiting other websites can also be useful. Most of the information is actually "undifferentiated", and will prove helpful no matter which school you're interested in.

Of the T14 law schools, my favorite is UVA http://www.law.virginia.edu/html/index.htm
It's clear, modern, looks good. Even the videos are worth watching.

Second would be HLS.

Honorable mention to Georgetown, but only in terms of content/amount of information. Its design is average at best.

Thoughts?

PS: before you accuse me of trolling, I didn't even apply to UVA ;-)

Georgetown is a complete mess. It takes hours to find the information you are looking for.

My favorite one is Oxford. They can't even spell "career" properly:

"The Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice is a one year part-time masters-level course for people embarking on a carer in IP law and practice."
