Explore St. John's Law

Our graduates are smart, hard-working and practice-ready. To prepare you to thrive in the profession, we teach you the fundamentals of legal analysis, legal doctrine, and legal writing and then give you a range of opportunities to build on that foundation as you solve real world legal problems hands on.

The results speak for themselves. St. John's Law continues to rank among the best in New York City, New York State, and the U.S. in bar passage and full-time, long-term, J.D. employment.

The links below will give you a quick introduction to the Law School, and I invite you to continue the conversation by visiting us, attending classes, talking to our current students, and meeting our faculty and staff.
