Each year, an interesting, talented, and diverse group of students
choose the University of Wisconsin Law School from among many other
Top students select Wisconsin 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 UW Law School is known for its relaxed, friendly atmosphere; its close-knit law school community; and its long-standing international reputation.
With its central location, Wisconsin draws students from both coasts.
In addition to the Midwest states, California, New York, and
Texas are well represented, and nearly 40% of our students are from
outside of Wisconsin.
In addition to seeking geographic diversity, the UW Law School seeks students who bring a wide-range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to encourage a full and complete exploration of legal issues within the classroom.
Indeed, students of all backgrounds choose to come to the UW Law School because of our historical commitment to creating a highly diverse educational environment in which differing points of view are represented.
