Multiple Degrees: Along with day and evening J.D. programs, UConn School of Law offers LL.M. (Master of Laws) degrees in five specialties—energy and environmental law, human rights and social justice, insurance, intellectual property and information governance, and U.S. Legal Studies — as well as five dual degrees and five certificate programs.

Flexible Approaches: With more than 200 day and evening class sections each year, as well as clinics, externships and exchange programs, students may design their own courses of study.

Practical Experience: Students are trained in practical skills in the UConn School of Law’s pioneering clinical programs and centers, including the preeminent Insurance Law Center, which provide invaluable hands-on experience guided by top-notch practitioners.

Distinguished Professors: The faculty includes leading scholars whose ideas and interdisciplinary research enrich their classes, drive the evolution of legal thought and further the cause of justice throughout the nation and the world.

Small Classes: The advantageous student-faculty ratio, among the lowest in the nation, creates a welcoming and collaborative learning environment.

Beautiful Campus: The stunning Gothic-style buildings on UConn Law’s 21-acre campus are widely appreciated for their beauty but also encompass the latest technology and one of the largest law libraries in the world.

Diverse Community: A strong commitment to diversity, embodied in a wide array of active student organizations and a highly supportive student services department, cultivates a warm sense of community.

Exceptional Value: Reasonable tuition and the ability to petition to become a Connecticut resident after one year assure that the average student debt on graduation continues to be the lowest in the Northeast and among the lowest in the country.
