Building the Next Era of Excellence

The University of Cincinnati College of Law is on the verge of a new era: a new building on Martin Luther King Drive in the heart of campus and along the primary connector to the new Innovation Corridor, strengthening connections to university and community partners, including the more than 800 law firms, Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, agencies, and state and federal courts that call Cincinnati home.

Completely upgraded classroom technology, expanded library facilities and centralized student services will make this a best-in-class law school like no other, serving as a launchpad for student success. As the nation's fourth-oldest college of law, we have a legacy of innovation. We hope you'll join us for what's Next.
