Marquette University Law School

Marquette University Law School

Not all law schools are alike. Marquette is small, personal, and decidedly practical. It is also highly professional, with outstanding programs and experiential opportunities. Values and tradition set Marquette University Law School apart, and what you'll find here is camaraderie, not competition. Professors and staff will know you by name. Even the Dean puts out a welcome mat and follows an open-door policy. Moreover, at Marquette you can have a life while you learn the law. We offer flexible scheduling and a part-time option. And we'll help you get to know Milwaukee, a beautiful and exciting city filled with opportunities.
