You’ve come to the right place. The University of Denver Sturm College of Law is a top 100 law school with nationally ranked programs in environmental and natural resources law, legal writing, clinical training, international law and tax law. Our curriculum is innovative and global in its perspective, and our faculty are some of the finest in the nation. They love to teach, and they recognize that the people filling their classrooms today are the same people who will shape tomorrow’s legal landscape. It’s their passion and commitment that makes DU Law stand out from the rest.
Upon graduation, our students are equipped with the skills necessary to provide immediate and valuable contributions to the legal community. Not only are they comfortable drafting a brief or presenting an oral argument, but they are also dedicated to upholding the highest ethical standards of their profession. Each student is required to perform a minimum of fifty hours of supervised public service work as a prerequisite to graduation. Students are able to effectively integrate the theory of law with the practice of law while understanding their obligation to perform pro bono work and contribute to their community as practicing attorneys.
We offer substantive law courses—some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the nation—in Spanish and Russian and a number of unique writing courses, including those that teach students how to draft pre-trial motions and to negotiate and draft agreements. Our move to the state-of-the-art Frank H. Ricketson Jr. Law Building allowed for increased integration of the most sophisticated classroom technology, including the utilization of CaseMap – a program designed to organize facts and legal research that is used by law professionals nationwide.
Whether you are seeking a comprehensive and strong J.D. degree, interested in a particular area of emphasis, want to augment your legal knowledge with a dual degree, or earn other graduate law degrees, the University of Denver Sturm College of Law provides you with the solid legal education you need to become a successful professional. All this in a location that offers countless recreational and cultural opportunities within minutes from the classroom. Law school doesn’t get any better than this.
