Law students in classroom

Small classes produce better lawyers.

The Creighton University School of Law faculty body is an attentive Midwest community that is dedicated to your success. In addition, we also offer externships and international programs to help form your well-rounded education. Our Nuremburg Summer Program, for example, known as “From Nuremburg to the Hague (N2H),” is a perennial draw for law students.

Improving our future requires pro bono support.

Last year, Creighton students volunteered 1,900 hours of free legal service to clients needing counsel, but unable to pay. By giving to Creighton University School of Law, you directly support incredible programs like this, and essential funding for student scholarships, that sustain our future excellence.
