About The Company

The Quinnipiac School of Law is a collaborative and diverse community of students, teachers and legal professionals dedicated to educating the “whole lawyer” — one who embodies deep personal and professional values, thinks holistically about client needs, and applies a thorough and nuanced understanding of the law to make a measurable impact on society. Our core values of diversity and inclusion are vital to achieving justice for all people without bias or discrimination. Our program blends rigorous classroom instruction with extensive practical training. Our faculty members are accomplished attorneys, respected scholars and mentors who represent a broad range of legal specialties. We enjoy robust partnerships with more than 350 externship field sites across the Northeast. We run eight on-campus law clinics and three student-edited scholarly journals. Our competition teams in Moot Court, Mock Trial, and Dispute Resolution regularly win regional tournaments and represent our school at the national level. Our graduates consistently achieve outstanding results on the Connecticut Bar Exam and go on to secure employment in exciting positions that require or prefer a law degree. The School of Law is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a proud member of the Association of American Law Schools.
