Some interesting facts about BYU Law School

Since its founding in 1973, the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University has been distinguished by the strength of its programs and the accomplishments of its graduates. The Law School’s relatively small entering class size of 140 students lends itself to individualized instruction, while the university, with its 30,000 students, provides all the athletic, cultural, and social opportunities that a student expects from a great university. The students also benefit from the location of the Law School, which is situated in Provo, Utah, at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains, giving students easy access to multiple state and national parks, ski resorts, and public lands with outstanding outdoor recreational activities. The Wasatch Front is the home of some of the top information technology, biomedical, aerospace, and outdoor-product companies in the world and offers law students early access to a strong business network both inside and outside the State of Utah.

The Law School is fully accredited by the American Bar Association, is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, and has a chapter of the Order of the Coif. It also possesses a highly qualified faculty that, in addition to publishing in top journals and regularly presenting at academic conferences, consistently demonstrates a commitment to the development of individual law students. The faculty members do this by assisting students with directed research projects, hiring students as research or teaching assistants, co-authoring papers with them, and guiding students through the networking process for clerkships and employment after law school. They also regularly take students to lunch and participate in student events. Due in large part to its outstanding faculty, the Law School has produced 14 United States Supreme Court clerks and has an enviable placement record throughout the country in all branches of the legal profession.

The students themselves have academic qualifications placing them among the top law school applicants in the nation every year, and they possess a commitment to leadership and service that sets them apart. Each entering class typically comes from over 20 different states, and approximately half of the students have lived abroad for at least a year engaging in various work, education, and volunteer activities. Over 70 percent of the students speak more than one language, and they currently range in age from 20 to 57. The diversity of the students’ backgrounds and experiences makes each entering class a rich community of ideas and viewpoints.
