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 several 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. 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.

The KU Law Blog provides a snapshot of life at KU Law. It features advice on succeeding in law school from KU Law’s Student Ambassadors, who give insight into the student experience and answer questions from prospective students. The blog also highlights stories from KU Law alumni, faculty, scholars and staff.
