A nationally respected faculty, congenial, diverse and talented students and a powerful network of successful alumni. These are the hallmarks of St. John’s University’s distinguished School of Law. Choosing a law school is a critically important decision – one that will affect the entire course of your professional life. For over 85 years, St. John's School of Law has fostered a tradition of excellence – a heritage that we continue to strengthen both academically and structurally.

Our modern School of Law building, enhanced with a state-of-the-art computer laboratory, the dramatically renovated Belson Moot Court Room and several brand new classrooms, is complemented by newly constructed campus housing. The enthusiasm generated by these facilities can be felt throughout the Law School community. New faculty members dedicated to teaching and scholarship, as well as new courses, clinics, centers and programs, augment our already exceptional curriculum.

The School of Law's history of producing outstanding lawyers compels our daily pursuit of excellence, which manifests itself in numerous classroom discussions and interactions, as well as in the many scholarly activities and student-run publications we offer for students and faculty.

Our rich heritage affords our students an unparalleled level of camaraderie, congeniality and encouragement. The supportive network of the Student Bar Association (SBA) and its affiliated organizations, as well as our impressive on-campus residence halls, provide students throughout their tenure here with a strong foundation for building lifelong professional and personal bonds.

In deciding upon a law school, ask the hard questions. St. John's School of Law will answer them. We look forward to meeting you.
