  1. I think The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C. should be added to the list. I attended CUA Law with several other LDS law students and found it to be very friendly and welcoming of LDS students. In fact historically CUA Law has sought LDS students. CUA Law strives to create a community of faith that is not just Catholic, but is inclusive of other faiths. One semester all of my law professors were Jewish. I believe CUA Law meets the criteria to be added to your list.

  2. My school (UTexas) LOVES the BYU kids. I don’t know what the percentages are, but there are a lot of LDS kids here.

  3. I would suggest at least trying to include all schools in the top 10 or close to the top 10 in US News & World Report. I'm just curious what those results would be.

    Also Notre Dame, just because that's where I went and I enjoyed my time there.

  4. Is there any reason why all ABA-accredited law schools aren’t included? I think, at the very least, all First Tier schools should be included. Just my two cents. Don’t know if it counts for much — my law school would probably rank pretty low in “Mormon friendliness,” but I think it was a good school.

  5. Florida Coastal School of Law should be added to your list. Great JRCLS program there as well as a number of LDS students.

  6. Please add the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law. We have a thriving LDS community, are near church historical sites, and have two LDS faculty members. We believe we are a great destination for LDS students and wish to attract more of them.

  7. G-O-N-Z-A-G-A. BIG JRLCS. Lots of LDS students. Merit scholarchips and scholarhips for "active christians"

  8. Looking at the list, it looks though BYU and the University of Utah arn't "Mormon Friendly", is that correct ?

  9. Thomas M. Cooley Law School has a very large Mormon population and a sizable JRCLS student chapter. In addition, JRLCS students (and Mormon students in general) tend to get internships (anecdotally, more than others).
