凯斯西储法学院很不错。排名一般,今年US News排在第57。不过它的国际法和医疗法排名都很高。今年US News专排International Law第11,Health Law第9。我就是因为医疗法排名和全额奖学金来的凯斯。我申请结果还不错,T14中waitlist了哥大、西北、乔治城,不想等了就都withdraw了。T14之后基本都录了,而且有奖学金。选择T14之后的法学院,我比较看中适不适合自己的兴趣和投入产出比,所以来了凯斯。而且本科在俄亥俄读的,对那里也很熟悉。

国际法和医疗法算是凯斯的金字招牌了,如果对这两个领域有兴趣而且拿到高额奖学金可以考虑来凯斯。

医疗法方面因为有Cleveland Clinic Foundation(全美前5)和Univeristy Hospital(全美前20)再加上凯斯自己杰出的医学院(全美前25,8个诺贝尔医学奖)给医疗法带来了得天独厚的教学和研究资源。在凯斯凡是和医疗相关的专业都有充足的funding和极高的专业排名。本科生最为热门的专业不是和其它大多数美国大学一样的psychology或者business,而是biomedical engineering。凯斯西储也是美国第一个医疗法项目的诞生地。

国际法方面,凯斯国际法项目的endowment是美国所有法学院中最高的。最有名的教授是同时兼任院长的 Michael Scharf教授。学院提供各种去往国际组织的实习机会。

还有虽然排名在50名以后,它的录取标准还是比较高的,毕竟凯斯是综合排名37的学校。很多美国名校的本科生会来凯斯读J.D.,像Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, Dartmouth, Chicago, Duke, Penn, Cornell, Brown, MIT等等, 这一点在公立大学比较少见。录取标准大概和排名20的爱荷华差不多,LSAT中间50%在157-162 分。如果要拿全奖的话 LSAT 165,GPA 3.7以上比较稳。J.D.一个年级只有120左右的学生,但是克利夫兰是Midwest一个重要的legal market,所以带来了不少的就业机会。克利夫兰是Big Law中 Jones Day和 Squire Patton Boggs的发源地,两家律所的克利夫兰办公室都是它们全球几十个办公室中最大的办公室之一了。克利夫兰更是Big Law中 Baker&Hostetler的总部。每年凯斯不少学生去这三家Big Law工作。超过一半的学生是读的duel degree,JD+MBA,JD+MD,JD+MA in bioethic等等。所以也有很多进咨询,四大和医院工作的。

最后,这所法学院盛产leader。比如俄亥俄的一些政治人物和法官。华纳兄弟的CEO,EY全球总裁,黑人民权运动律师等等。是一所历史悠久的法学院。美剧The Deep End中的Addy Fisher就是CWRU Law毕业的,她的同事都是Stanford和Columbia之类的。凯斯西储是个很学术的学校,值得一读,我8月开学,到时候再来更新一下。
补充了一下,询问了往届学长关于中国J.D.就业的情况,如下。

At Case Western Reserve University we prepare our students for success.

You can learn more about our experiential learning program here and how it is integrated into our curriculum here.

We’re extremely proud of our home – University Circle - one of the largest concentrations of educational, cultural, and health care institutions in the world, and Cleveland, an exciting city where law is one of our major industries. The concentration of outstanding institutions within easy walking distance of our law school is unsurpassed. Our art museum and orchestra each are rated among the top five in the country. The Cleveland Institute of Music, Cleveland Institute of Art, and several other cultural institutions complete our neighborhood, along with the great restaurants of Little Italy only a few blocks away.

Located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, Cleveland is an exciting, attractive, and affordable place to live, learn, work and play. One of the benefits of attending law school at Case Western Reserve University is the affordability and availability of reasonably priced housing in Cleveland. A recent survey of current law student revealed these average monthly rental rates: $475 per month for students in a shared apartment, $775 per month for students living in a single accommodation and $1,000+ per month for family accommodations. Because of low housing expenses, your housing budget at Case Western Reserve will be much less than at a law school in other, more expensive cities.

As a legal and business center, Cleveland readily competes with much bigger cities. In addition to the strong legal community, the area's service industries include major accounting firms, financial institutions, and top hospitals. Home to many of the nation’s top 100 law firms, Greater Cleveland also boasts a number of Fortune 500 companies and is a leader in biomedical technology, polymers, electronics, manufacturing, publishing, and the arts.
