The "Power of Orange"
Situated within one of the world’s great centers of learning, Syracuse University College of Law believes that 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 that will make you a better lawyer and a better leader throughout your lifetime. Just as you will in the real world, in Syracuse you partner with thinkers from across many disciplines, including faculty and students from Syracuse University's top-ranked graduate schools such as the Maxwell School and Newhouse School. In fact, uniquely at the College of Law, you can add greater depth to your professional education by earning a joint degree at one of these schools, or others—literally two degrees for the price of one.
To study the law is to join the ranks of some of the best minds in history—leaders, idealists, inventors, entrepreneurs, dreamers, agents of change, heroes—this is the tradition you become a part of at Syracuse. Dineen Hall—our radically, reimagined 21st-century law school environment—symbolizes the College of Law’s global, entrepreneurial, future-leaning legal education.
Our law school is rigorous, intimate, and friendly. Your mentors will be faculty known for extraordinary teaching who also happen to be thought leaders in their fields. Ranked among the best in the country for our trial and appellate program, Syracuse is also a leader in emerging ﬁelds such as national security policy and law, disability law, and innovation law.
We won’t kid you, it snows a little in the winter here—but with the prestige, student life, amenities, and a lower cost of city living while you earn your degree, we say bundle up: it’s worth it!
Whether you are destined for a big law ﬁrm or a solo practice; a clerkship or public advocacy; international banking, public service on Capitol Hill, or the C-suite of a major corporation—the knowledge, practice, and network you gain here is an incomparable experience and education designed to endure.
