Hi all! I just wanted to know if top schools in US would generally prefer TOEFL over IELTS.

There is no "preference" of one test over the other, only specific test admission. If a law school says on its website that it accepts both, then it accepts both without discriminating against one in favour of the other. If it only mentions TOEFL and/or clearly states that IELTS score are not acceptable (such as Columbia Law School) or vice versa, then it only accepts the English test it mentions.

I agree with the comment above.
It is best to take TOEFL anyway. However, if you plan to apply for any UK universities, considering taking IELTS test is also a good option and apply to the schools which accept IELTS result.
