How To Get Into
Chicago Law School
Chicago Program Overview
With an intimate class size of roughly 600 students, the University of Chicago Law School emphasizes its tight-knit community and focus on interdisciplinary learning. Students are encouraged to embrace “the life of the mind” and study law for the sake of learning.
To that end, the Socratic Method is embraced and students are expected to be active participants in their own legal education. There’s room for socializing as well, including breakfast and lunch with faculty and administrators, weekly Wine Mess and Coffee Mess, and Wellness Wednesday Programming for maintaining work-life balance to counterbalance the stresses of a rigorous academic course of study.
Standing proud before a zero-depth reflecting pool on the South Side of Chicago, the modernist building that houses the law school was designed by architect Eero Saarinen, whose work includes St. Louis’ Gateway Arch. The diverse Hyde Park neighborhood is within easy access of parks, museums, and shopping districts.
Former President Barack Obama famously taught constitutional law at UChicago. Current faculty includes luminaries like Martha Nussbaum, Richard Posner, and David Strauss.
