Office of Admissions


The study of law is an experience in discovery, discourse, and discipline. At the University of Louisville’s Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, students find the excitement of new ideas, the challenge of intellectual exchange, and the rigor of critical analysis.

UofL Law is exceptional in many ways. We boast a strong core curriculum, enhanced by specialized and interdisciplinary studies. We offer a full-time program (3 years) and a part-time program (4 or 5 years). Faculty members dedicated to both teaching and research guide students with strong academic skills and diverse backgrounds. From a supportive legal community, we draw job opportunities and adjuncts who bring their real world expertise to the classroom. International exchanges, for faculty and for students, expose our school to global opportunities.

At UofL Law, we emphasize the development of theory, skills, and values. This focus is reflected in our extensive skills program, a downtown Law Clinic, externship opportunities, expansive moot court and professional skills competitions, and the Samuel L. Greenbaum Public Service Program. UofL Law is also home to three student-run law journals. We proudly provide all students with the training and opportunity to transform themselves and the world around them.

UofL Law is located minutes away from 
the largest legal community in the region. Our expansive alumni network, spanning 49 states and 6 countries, is invaluable 
to your success.
