A force for positive change

Law stands at the core of the 21st century’s greatest challenges, from transforming criminal justice, to fostering innovation in technology, business, and health care, to structuring the global response to climate change. As bold, innovative leaders, today’s students will become tomorrow’s lawyers and a force for positive change.

Strength in diversity

Cultivating tomorrow’s bold leaders in law

Our highly talented, diverse students gain a deep intellectual foundation in the law through passionate engagement in the classroom. Our clinics immerse them in practical lawyering for diverse clients and communities. Together, our courses and clinics prepare students to be advocates, problem solvers, and innovators at the highest levels of public and private service.

Bringing our legal scholarship to the world stage

Our faculty’s groundbreaking scholarship crosses disciplinary boundaries and shapes inquiry over a range of areas, including international trade, domestic violence, corporate tax and finance, race and the law, and robots and artificial intelligence. As experts in their fields, faculty members are leaders in national and global academic, professional, and advocacy arenas, and with service in the White House, international and foreign courts, and local government.

Seeking justice for all

The Investor Rights Clinic, foremost in its field, represents low- and modest-income investors like retired teachers and nurses who have suffered financial losses from broker misconduct—but can’t afford an attorney. Since its launch, the clinic has recovered more than $1.25 million for investors. Seventeen additional clinics in health rights, bankruptcy, environmental justice, tenants’ rights, and other areas work to reform the law and seek justice for all.
