    Its actually a SECOND tier law school

    from Wiki



    The Law School is ranked as a "Tier 2" school by the 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report's "Best Grad Schools." Rutgers Law–Newark is ranked 82nd overall in the 2012 U.S. News Law rankings, tied with nine additional schools.[9] The Law School is ranked 54th in Super Lawyers' 2010 U.S. Law School Rankings.[10]


    given how close it is to major league schools like Columbia, NYU and Fordham (Columbia, NYU being on most top ten lists, Fordham top 20) you wonder why she went to a lame school like this.

    Rutgers is not a bad law school and she was law review, and she went on to teach at many of the best law schools in the country (she taught at the Rutgers School of Law–Newark (1977–78), the University of Houston Law Center (1978–83), the University of Michigan (visiting, 1985), and the University of Texas School of Law (1981–87). She also worked as a research associate at the University of Texas at Austin (1983–87). She joined the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1987, where she became the William A Schnader Professor of Commercial Law in 1990. She joined Harvard Law School in 1992 as the Robert Braucher Visiting Professor of Commercial Law, and began a permanent position as the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law in 1995), which is particularly impressive given her non-Ivy beginning.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    It appears she got some or most of the jobs based on affirmative action combined with her fraudulent claim of being Native American.

    Ah. My fault, I thought it was a lower school in the tier 3, did not remember your point correctly. Rutgers isn't a bad law school but as you've said doesn't rate one well to teach at the Ivy level.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It would appear that that is your position about everyone who you don't like for political reasons. As I mentioned earlier, she was recruited to Harvard by Charles Fried -- Reagan's Solicitor General -- who has said that he didn't know anything about the Native American business. Specifically, he said, "That's totally stupid, ignorant, uninformed and simply wrong. I presented her case to the faculty. I did not mention her Native American connection because I did not know about it."

    Having gone to a top college that had the best law school in the world (where I took a couple classes) and then on to another law school that with the graduate program I did a Joint degree in was ranked top in the world in that program, I pretty much know the score. and warren's appointments ooze affirmative action-its not like there are a whole bunch of native american's with top law degrees running around

    but if her credentials were based on her status then you are wrong again

    would she have had all those teaching appointments purely on merit? I doubt it

    but the issue is her honesty and it appears to be lacking

    It's when I hear her take on the law and social issues and know instinctively as a non JD that she's full of it that it gives me no other choice than to say "affirmitive action appointed moron.".

    she has that elitist leftist sense of entitlement. the attitude that because she thinks she is well educated she is entitled to the wealth of others. The worst kind of parasite that spawns the plaintiff's bar in the law. I will explain that tomorrow-I have a long day tomorrow

    and what of others, born with a silver spoon up their asses, who attended ivy league schools based only on legacies and affluence
    i am guessing they sit around all day, on line, trashing those who have truly succeeded; exhibiting their transparent envy towards those who have actually accomplished great things based on their work effort and merit
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
