The University of Kansas School of Law has been preparing students to be outstanding members of the legal profession since 1878.
Our students learn the foundations of the law, then gain the hands-on experience necessary to begin their careers ready for practice. KU Law offers nine clinical and field placement programs. Students also have access to skills simulations, student publications and a nationally ranked moot court program.
KU School of Law faculty are active scholars, researchers and subject matter experts in their fields. KU ranks 40th overall and 16th among public law schools for scholarly impact, according to a 2021 study. Many are authors of textbooks and casebooks used in classes at KU and in law schools across the U.S. and overseas.
Students enjoy small class sizes, a collegial environment and access to a loyal alumni network of more than 8,000 Jayhawk Lawyers across the U.S. and around the world.
