Small classes, outstanding teaching, and abundant practical opportunities prepare graduates of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law to do well in all their undertakings.
Located in Kentucky's largest legal market, Louisville Law offers students many real-world experiences to bring to employers. Louisville Law students clerk in a wide variety of legal areas and work in small and large firms and for many of Louisville’s major employers, including Yum! Brands and Humana.
Externships during students' second and third year provide the opportunity to practice being a lawyer in tax, immigration, technology transfer, criminal and judicial arenas. Students also can work in the school’s three law clinics: The Ackerson Clinic (Emergency Protective Order hearings, divorce actions and housing cases); the Entrepreneurship Clinic and the Mediation Clinic.
Louisville Law students participate in more than a dozen national and regional oral advocacy competitions, enabling every interested student to learn from these valuable experiences. In recent years, Louisville Law’s moot court teams have gained impressive accolades, including winning the Wagner National Labor and Employm...ent Law Moot Court Competition.
Dedicated to the belief that doing well as a lawyer includes doing good as a member of society, the Greenebaum Public Service Program requires each student to do a minimum of 30 hours of pro bono work before graduation. Students regularly exceed this minimum.
Several dual degree programs allow interdisciplinary study in a broad range of areas: business administration, social work, humanities, political science, divinity, urban planning, and bioethics and medical humanities.
The University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law also provides generous space for students, area professionals and members of the community to gather. Many firms and organizations, as well as the Kentucky Appellate and Supreme Courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, use the Allen Court Room. Observing such hearings and trials enhances our students' educations.
