“The Harvard Law School faculty has a range and depth of expertise, in all fields of legal scholarship and practice, which no other law school in the country can rival. Harvard Law faculty are leaders in their fields: setting the debates in legal theory and policy; opening up new lines of inquiry; and working out solutions to evolving real-world problems. One hundred-and-one full-time professors hold positions on the faculty, making it possible for the Law School to offer a sweeping and intellectually stimulating selection of courses, seminars, and reading groups.” (Harvard Law Website) In addition, each year the law school invites visiting scholars to teach and visit the campus.

Harvard Law School has a diverse student body. The school reports that each year it welcomes approximately 1,900 students from throughout the United States and 70 countries around the world. When it comes to student life, Harvard Law School offers a myriad of extracurricular activities. With over 100 organizations and journals, law school students have plenty of opportunities from which to choose and students are encouraged to form new organizations to explore and develop their interests. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Moot Court competitions as well as interschool contests. In addition, the law school also boasts about its newly remodeled dining facility and outdoor plazas, comfortable student lounges, and Hemenway Gymnasium, which provides law students with a convenient and ultra-modern fitness facility. However, the benefits of student life at Harvard Law School extend way beyond its doors. The law school describes its location as “one of America’s most livable and historic areas. Harvard Square is an energetic place with fine restaurants and cheap eats, bars and music, dozens of bookstores, street performers, and various specialty shops.” (Harvard Law Website)

For those interested, Harvard Law School offers on-campus housing options ranging from traditional single dormitories to student apartments. In addition, for those students who prefer to live off campus, there are University owned and operated apartments and a fair amount of privately owned housing located close to campus.
