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.
Law matters. Lawyers matter. Dean Simons talks about the law school's success because of its strength of culture and consistently strong outcomes.
On January 30, 2020 Dean Michael A. Simons taught the criminal law case The Queen v. Dudley and Stephens, the "cannibals in a lifeboat" case, to a packed Belson Moot Court Room. He and Assistant Dean of Admissions, Alicia Meehan, then answered audience questions about law school admissions.
The School seeks to identify and select a diverse group of talented students who will succeed not only at St. John's, but continue our tradition of excellence in the legal and business worlds.
