Some interesting facts about University of Pittsburgh Law School

Founded in 1895, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law is a globally respected institution preparing students to become excellent attorneys and leaders within both the legal profession and society. The curriculum applies legal scholarship and skills to contemporary issues, from international conflict resolution to intellectual property and technology. Beginning in the first year, our students balance rigorous core and specialty courses with immersion in clinics, practicums, networking opportunities with local law firms, and exposure to local innovators.

Pitt Law’s superior preparation begins with small classes. The average class size is fewer than 20 students. But Pitt Law’s reach as a pillar of a public research university with more than 10,000 graduate students in 14 graduate and professional schools creates deep opportunities for law students. The university’s reputation as a center for biotechnology, engineering, energy research, business, public policy, and health care illuminates the pathways for law careers. Our next-door neighbor, Carnegie Mellon University, complements Pitt’s strengths with advances in robotics, computer science, entertainment technology, public policy, and more.

That synergy creates a clear advantage for Pitt Law students: Those admitted to law as well as to other graduate programs may complete both degrees in less time than two consecutive degrees would normally require.

Pitt Law’s mission to encourage talent includes a commitment to providing scholarships for highly qualified students through all three years. Nearly 70 percent of all students receive financial aid.
