Charlotte School of Law

Charlotte School of Law

Charlotte School of Law’s curriculum is grounded in real-world learning experiences, award-winning community service, and demonstrated success in preparing students for evolving and emerging market realities that today’s graduates must navigate. Our curriculum is designed to facilitate bar examination success and readiness to step directly into law practice or law-related careers. In addition to legal theory, our curriculum emphasizes practical training in the skills and knowledge required to practice law, run a law practice, communicate with clients, and manage cases and transactions. In the past several years, the Charlotte School of Law student body has grown both in size and diversity. Our students come from over 46 states and 9 countries. Our faculty has grown to include both scholars and practitioners—all dedicated to the school's mission to maintain a student-centered focus that promotes professional preparedness and serves underrepresented communities. In August of 2013, the school moved to a new state-of-the-art facility in Uptown Charlotte that focuses on the student experience by incorporating the latest in technology and an emphasis on a collaborative learning environment. Charlotte School of Law received full accreditation from the American Bar Association on June 10, 2011.
