Academics

While talented students and extraordinary faculty are the sine qua non of a great law school, what happens during your three years of legal education will ultimately determine your success in the profession.

At Northwestern Law, we teach our students not only the law but also how to educate themselves so they can effectively perform multiple and changing professional roles in the course of long careers.

Our educational program provides a strong core foundation in the law and legal reasoning, exposes students to the law in context and in action, builds teamwork and communication skills, reflects the increasing globalization of law and business, and enables them to share an understanding of law and legal institutions with non lawyers.
