IP: WUSTL vs UW vs Cardozo


LawBizGal
I've been admitted to these 3 schools and am trying to decide which to choose. Cost not being an issue - which school has the best overall employment prospects for soft IP (copyright, trademark, entertainment)? Should I go with the highest ranked IP program at Cardozo; the highest ranked law school at WUSTL, or an innovation hub city at UW in Seattle?

Any advice would be greatly welcomed.

Usually I would say go for the highest ranked law school, but in this case if you intend to work in the IP field and cost is not an issue, go for Cardozo. In my experience as an IP attorney it is the most renowned name of the three, plus it is in the most exciting city among the three options (and arguably of the world :-)).

Thanks for your thoughts, Schatz.

Would you still recommend Cardozo over the other two programs, in my case - where I'm a US attorney barred in NY & CA; who's lived & worked in NYC before; currently residing in LA and wanting to return to LA or West Coast?

Do you think soft IP firms and/or entertainment companies are familiar with the Cardozo name more than WUSTL and UW?

Thanks again in advance.

I should have mentioned that I am a European IP litigator and in my experience European IP firms are still more familiar with Cardozo than with the two others. If you are a US attorney, that might be very different and I do not have enough experience of law firms there to provide you a meaningful answer...

Thanks again, Schatz.

Your thoughts have been very helpful, and it's good to hear that Cardozo is well known abroad. I've already placed my deposit with Cardozo and will likely attend there since they cater more to arts & entertainment versus the other programs.

All the best to you.
