Student Reviews and Ratings for Michigan State University-College of Law

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Eric Schermerhorn's review addresses a real and serious issue undermining this school...........not a healthy environment and you can tell by how depressed/anxious people appear to be at this school....professors have been inappropriate/outright disrespectful towards students over difference in opinion.....(the worst example during my time was when an elderly professor yelled, including the use of profanity, at a student for supporting a political candidate she didn't personally agree with....that's right, a role model for aspiring lawyers found it appropriate to tell a student to go to hell because he supported a different candidate than she did).... (maybe that's what Eric Schermerhorn's review refers to? maybe not - many more stories like that, unfortunately).......some of these professors have got to go.....not for their views but because of the way they disrespect students........just unacceptable.......... dropping in ranking and deservedly..... consider saving money by going to Cooley
