    LOL @ the above responder...Princeton hasn't had a law school for a very, very long time. To the best of my knowledge, Tufts doesn't even offer a JD degree.

    There are many good law schools on the east coast. How good are you talking about? Of course, there's Harvard, Yale, NYU, Columbia, UPenn, etc., which are all very difficult to get into. Then there are schools like Fordham, George Washington, and UNC (among others), which are all mid-tier 1's (still good, but slightly easier to get into). UMaryland and American U are in the lower first tier.

    Second-tier schools (ranked 51-100) are ok, but some of them you want to avoid (I've heard a lot of bad things about Brooklyn).

    Law school rankings can be found here. Some of the rankings are questionable (such as Indiana U. being #23 and not in the 30s), but they give a good indication of which law schools are good:
