School of Law
We share the entire University of Dayton's commitment to serving others and offering an education that blends theory and practice. In addition to case work and legal reasoning, we also develop the professional skills and enhanced appreciation for ethics that distinguish our graduates as legal leaders.
Our faculty take on active roles as teachers, mentors and scholars.
Special programs include the Program in Law and Technology, the Pro Bono Commitment to Community Program and Law Review.
Full-time faculty have experience as judicial clerks, public defenders, practicing attorneys in private firms and more.
The best way to learn is by doing. That’s why you’ll work with legal professionals so you can see how the legal theories you study are applied in the real world. We even offer practical training in essential lawyering skills starting in your first year, such as accessing legal authority and communicating legal analysis.
- Available concentrations include Criminal Law, Cyber Law and Intellectual Property.
- Opportunities to work under a licensed attorney’s supervision help students develop skills and career connections.
- Capstone Courses are designed to test your intellectual skills during your last year at Dayton Law.
