Some interesting facts about University of Cincinnati Law School

A few miles north of the Ohio River lies the University of Cincinnati College of Law, one of the nation’s top public law schools.

Reflecting on its mission, the College of Law’s new home will be a place “to educate and inspire.” A $45.6 million renovation will transform an existing 84,443-square-foot campus facility to create open, modern, light-filled spaces for the College of Law’s close-knit student community. A prominent location along Martin Luther King Drive will place UC Law in the heart of campus and adjacent to the primary connector in the new Innovation Corridor, strengthening connections to university partners and providing unparalleled access and opportunity to our community partners including the more than 800 law firms, Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, agencies, and state and federal courts that call Cincinnati home.

Forbes magazine rated the UC’s campus as one of the most beautiful in the world. While the university is one of America’s top public research institutions and boasts a total student population of over 45,000, Cincinnati Law remains one of the smallest public urban law schools in the nation with approximately 110 students per incoming class.
