Faculty & Student Body
Akron Law School hosts a plethora of student organizations whose activities compliment the material studied in class and provide a setting in which students can network with future colleagues. In order to bridge the gap between the law school experience and the actual practice of law, Akron has established an attorney/student mentor program, in which a 1st year, second-semester law student is paired with a practicing attorney and exposed to the daily realities of the legal career. Additionally, the Akron student Bar Association administers a student/student mentoring program in which entering 1L’s are paired with upper-divisions students with similar interests in order to facilitate a richer educational and social experience at law school.
The Akron School of Law offers law students on-campus housing in either the honors residence hall or upperclassmen/graduate student halls through the University’s office of Residence Life and Housing. Off-campus housing is also an option via a variety of private realtors.
