The University of Wisconsin Law School is a nationally recognized law school drawing students from around the country. With its central location, the UW Law School appeals to students from both coasts and from the south; New York, California, Virginia and Texas are well-represented in each year's entering class. While many students desire to stay in the area, half of our students will choose to practice outside of Wisconsin.
Top students select the UW Law School for a variety of reasons, but prominent among them are the quality of education; the law-in-action philosophy; the excellent clinical opportunities; and the resources of a large world-class university in a beautiful city. In addition, the Law School is known for its relaxed, friendly atmosphere; its close-knit community; and its long-standing international reputation.
Diversity is another draw to the UW Law School. In addition to seeking geographic diversity, the Law School actively recruits students who bring a wide-range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to encourage a full and complete exploration of legal issues within the classroom. For more information about our students, please see our Admissions Statistics.
According to a recent survey of employers who hire our graduates, our students are highly regarded, well prepared for practice, and particularly strong in legal analysis and creative thinking. The Law School's commitment to recruiting and educating students who have the maturity and judgment to assume responsibility and work easily with others enables our students to perform well in a variety of work environments. In addition, employers note that our Legal Education Opportunities (LEO) Program is a national model for the recruitment and retention of students of color and is of particular interest to firms seeking diversity.

Because employers often interview students from many different law schools -- each with its own unique grading system -- we thought we would offer you a brief explanation of the UW Law School's grading system. If you have any questions regarding this system, please do not hesitate to contact one of our staff.
