A Learning Environment
Here you’ll study with many of the nation’s most influential scholars and teachers, from constitutional historians to legal futurists. Your coursework will range from classical legal studies in contracts and civil procedure to specialized seminars in legal analytics and blockchain law, all of it carefully geared to the demands of modern legal practice. You’ll stay ahead of market trends through new course work in compliance law, legal technology and more.
Skills training, a critical component of your legal education, comprises a large portion of Chicago-Kent’s curriculum. Many of our students hone their skills through our trial and appellate advocacy programs, currently ranked fourth and second in the nation, or through our in-house, fee-generating law firm.
Students with STEM interests often work in our Law Lab, the world’s premiere center on legal innovation and technology, or in our Chicago-Kent Patent Hub, where licensed patent attorneys provide pro bono legal assistance to under-resourced inventors. You can leverage our extensive externship and pro bono programs, tapping into practice opportunities at courts, businesses, government agencies and public interest entities throughout Chicago’s vast legal community.
