University of Montana School of Law
For more than 100 years, the University of Montana School of Law has educated lawyers and prepared them to serve society. In 1914, the School of Law became a member of The Association of American Law Schools and in 1923, received accreditation from the American Bar Association. In 2011, the School of Law celebrated 100 years of education and service. Each year, approximately 84 students enroll from across the country looking for a hands-on approach to legal education. Under the guidance of dedicated faculty and staff, students thrive in an experience-rich environment that integrates theory and practice. Long before it was fashionable, the University of Montana School of Law made a commitment to training practice-ready lawyers. At the University of Montana, every student must participate in clinical programs in order to graduate. The atmosphere at the University of Montana is enhanced by the surrounding Rocky Mountains, where wilderness and recreation offer a break from the rigors of law study.
