We excel in teaching not only the law but how to practice it competently and ethically so students can succeed in today's – and tomorrow's – world. 

    The Law School has always been a leader in innovative legal education by providing students with knowledge of the law, the skills they need to practice it competently, and the ethics they must observe while doing so.

    We require academic competence and professional conduct comparable to the standards of the legal profession itself.  Through our rigorous academic program and unsurpassed clinical and externship opportunities, our graduates enter the profession prepared to hit the ground running as effective and productive lawyers.
