We noticed that you guys enjoy trash talking about rival law schools. And we also realize, despite our general ignorance about sports, that we are now in the midst of “March Madness.” So, as several of you requested, we are introducing a March Madness-inspired feature to ATL.
Welcome to ATL MARCH MADNESS: LAW SCHOOLS!!!
Here are the brackets. They’re based, as you might have guessed, on the U.S. News and World Report rankings. At least they’re good for something!
(Where schools were tied, we assigned seeds based on where the schools appear on the USNWR list, which seemed to break ties based on alphabetical order.)
Here’s how the tournament will work. Law schools will advance to the next round based on reader polls, in which we ask you which law school is “cooler.” You can define “cooler” in whatever way you wish. Basically, it’s a popularity contest.
The first set of polls appears after the jump.
Here are the polls for the left side of the bracket. The polls for the right side will follow later today. Enjoy!
Update: The rest of the polls are now available here.
