About University of Colorado Law School
Established in 1892, the University of Colorado Law School (www.colorado.edu/law) is one of the top public law schools in the United States. Located at the base of the inspiring Rocky Mountains, Colorado Law’s curriculum, research centers, and experiential learning opportunities prepare students for success in today’s changing legal environment. Its diverse student body represents over 100 undergraduate institutions, and last fall, the school welcomed its most diverse 1L class ever. A deliberately low student-to-faculty ratio enables meaningful engagement between faculty and students inside and outside the classroom. The school’s nine clinics and three research centers focus on the school’s nationally recognized areas of strength, including natural resources and environmental law, American Indian law, juvenile and family law, business and entrepreneurial law, and technology and intellectual property law. Colorado Law’s graduates thrive in a variety of professional settings and fields across Colorado and nationwide.
