Established in 1888, the University of Minnesota Law School opened in its doors in the basement of the main University building. Years later in 1914, the law school began operating one of the nation's first student clinics. Now, the law school occupies a 446-acre campus in Minneapolis, MN and is home to 18 clinics that cover subjects such as bankruptcy, immigration, child advocacy and housing. U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the school among the top 20 law schools in the nation.

Students have access to a collegial environment and numerous resources through the University of Minnesota and the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. During the first year, students engage in the traditional courses that lay the foundation for the study of law. In their second and third years, students are required to complete a few courses and a writing requirement. Other than that, students have a wide range of opportunities available to them at the University of Minnesota Law School. Students can either choose from a myriad of electives or focus on a particular area of the law. In addition, there are a number of student organizations, clinical programs, study-abroad opportunities, a moot court program and many other experiences in which students may be interested.
