Case Western Reserve University, School of Law

We are a nationally recognized law school in the heart of University Circle, a thriving cultural neighborhood near Cleveland, Ohio. Our international law, health law and intellectual property law programs are among the top in the nation. Leadership courses and real-practice experiences are infused throughout our innovative curriculum. All students begin working with real clients in their first year and participate in a semester-long full-time practice experience during their third year. National Jurist magazine named us among the top 25 law schools that deliver the best public interest law opportunities. The magazine also listed us among its first "honor roll of law schools" that deliver the best practical training. We offer JD, LLM and SJD degrees, as well as nine dual-degree programs. During the third year, JD students may study abroad and complete a foreign LLM degree at one of three partner schools: Comillas Pontifical University in Madrid, Middlesex University in London and University of Paris Dauphine.
