University of North Carolina School of Law

University of North Carolina School of Law

For discerning, high caliber students, UNC School of Law is often the perfect choice. Our students accrue the lowest debt among graduates of any top-ranked law school — private or public — and when they leave our famously beautiful campus, they do so as confident and principled advocates of justice. Our alumni work with distinction all over the globe, and in North Carolina, no school has more graduates in positions of prominence than Carolina Law. We count many nationally-renowned legal experts and leading scholars among our faculty, who know that a deep, functional and nuanced understanding of law must be accompanied by a mastery of the practical skills of lawyering.
