    Good lawyers can come out of any school, except maybe the worst ones. If a person entering law school hopes to practice at a place with cocktail party status (frequently such firms have excellent lawyers), law school ranking will matter. However, if being a careful, smart, creative, and hardworking lawyer who cares for and about your clients is what you want, go to the best school that accepts you, work hard, and learn to think like a lawyer.
