Practice-Driven Legal Education for the 21st Century

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.
