Practice-Driven Legal Education for the 21st Century
In 1973, we stopped talking about what was wrong with legal education. And started doing something about it. We were founded to train lawyers for the information age. That was in 1973 — we were a little ahead of our time. And we continue to be — our practice-oriented approach includes the nation’s first and only bar-exam alternative program, a faculty of accomplished attorneys who bring extensive practice experience into the classroom, and celebrated legal residency and clinic programs that afford our students extensive real-world experience at major firms and organizations prior to graduation. Oh, and we also happen to have a 6:1 student to full-time faculty ratio that fosters mentorship and an engaging community environment.
