Distinguish yourself here!

At the University of Akron School of Law, you can Distinguish Yourself by gaining among other things:

An Affordable and High Quality Education. Akron Law is consistently ranked as a “Best Value” law school. Our tuition for residents, non-residents, and even international students is less than $25,000 per year for full-time students and about $15,000 for part-time students.  Scholarship awards are available and remain valid for your entire law school career so long as you stay in good academic standing.

Real Practice Experience: Before graduation, you can interact with real clients, try a real case in state trial and appellate court, learn to draft agreements, serve the community, and do much more under the supervision and mentoring of our expert faculty. After graduation, you can immediately apply this experience in law and a variety of other fields.      

A Competitive Edge: Smaller classes, supportive faculty with real world experience, greater opportunities, extensive training, and a host of joint degree programs elevate your prospects of success. Our national championship trial teams and top student-run law review illustrate the possibilities. Our employment placement rate evidences the same.

Exposure to Cutting-Edge Programs: Take advantage of our offerings and specialized certificates in “red hot” legal fields including intellectual property, health care, and litigation.  You can take advantage of a variety of joint degrees and extensive offerings in high-demand areas such as corporate law, international law, criminal law, family, and other areas. Our Center for Constitutional Law is one of only four Constitutional Law Centers established by the U.S. Congress in 1986.    

At Akron Law, we invest in your success as a future professional. We also provide you with an ABA-accredited education, access to the legal community, excellent teaching, as well as the flexibility to complete your degree quickly or at your own pace.
