To study the law is to join the ranks of some of the best minds in history. You join leaders, idealists, inventors, entrepreneurs, dreamers, agents of change, and heroes. This is the tradition you enter when you study at Syracuse University College of Law.
We believe an outstanding legal education is as dynamic as the law itself. Syracuse puts you at the center of an intellectual, professional, personal, and cultural experience. It is an experience that will make you a better lawyer and a better leader.
Syracuse sits at an enviable position for law schools. It is rigorous, intimate, and friendly. Your mentors are faculty known for extraordinary teaching who also happen to be thought-leaders in their fields. Ranked among the best in the nation for our trial and appellate program, the College also is a leader in emerging ﬁelds such as disability law, national security law, and technology commercialization.

We are proud to count among our alumni a US Vice President, members of the Senate and Congress, state senators and assembly members, state attorneys general, and many federal and state judges. In addition, many of our alumni have moved into leadership positions in some of the world’s largest law firms and into the fields of finance, real estate development, and international business affairs.
