The University of Cincinnati College of Law is the nation’s premier, small, urban, public law school. As the country’s fourth oldest continuously operating law school, students and alumni of the college carry on a long tradition of reaching far and wide across both the legal spectrum and the map. With an enviable 11:1 student to faculty ratio, strong bar passage and employment statistics, accomplished, award-winning faculty, and a dynamic campus, the College of Law is moving ahead in this new century with boldness and vision.
Students of the College of Law come from diverse backgrounds and possess many talents. Former PeaceCorp and AmeriCorps volunteers, teachers, doctors, and corporate business executives, continue to choose UC Law for their legal education. This year’s entering class includes students from 63 different undergraduate institutions that have majored in over 44 different subjects. These students come to UC Law with a high level of academic achievement, with a median undergraduate GPA of 3.57. In the entering class, 15 percent of our students are minorities and 47 percent are women.
UC Law graduates provide value to many organizations throughout the country. They are employed at some of the nation’s largest law firms and in some of the Nation’s highest courts. Alumni of the college have also been selected for Skadden, Equal Justice Works, and Presidential Management Fellowships. Our graduates are found in Fortune 500 companies working in the business sector and at reputable non-governmental organizations like Amnesty International.
