Creighton University School of Law

Creighton University School of Law was founded in 1904, not just to prepare lawyers but to develop leaders. To provide a powerful education, based on a solid mission statement and rooted in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. We believe in the Jesuit idea of educating the whole person, of empowering our graduates to find their place in the world. So that they contribute to the greater good. Through leadership. Through service. Throughout their life. The university is located just blocks from downtown Omaha, a metropolitan area with a population of approximately 800,000. Known as the River City, Omaha is the heart of the Midlands and the largest metroplex between Chicago and Denver.
