Northern Kentucky University - Salmon P. Chase College of Law

Founded in 1893, NKU Chase College of Law is located on the main campus of Northern Kentucky University, a metropolitan university just seven miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio. A major Midwestern center of commerce, industry, arts, and entertainment, the region supports a thriving legal and business community. Chase offers both full-time and part-time programs of study. It is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. For 119 years, NKU Chase has been providing legal education to working professionals through its part-time evening division. In addition, Chase now offers a part-time day division designed for those who work evenings or have other commitments that prevent study in the evening. In both part-time programs, classes typically meet three times per week, although students are occasionally required to attend events on other days.
