Local Impact. Global Reach.

Great cities have great law schools, and the presence of Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland is no exception. Cleveland is home to several of the world’s largest law firms and also offers many avenues for public service and nonprofit work to students and alumni.

Lawyers help build cities like Cleveland, and the law school is poised to bring talent from around the world to work with the city’s 50-plus private equity firms, its substantial venture capital population and the countless innovators across Cleveland and around the university.

While Cleveland is the law school’s home, its reach is global. Case Western Reserve law students are encouraged to study abroad in semester-long international law programs, including at partner law schools in China, Europe and Canada. These students learn directly from in-country faculty in programs that are truly immersive. Students are also able to participate in semester-long externships abroad, preparing them to be lawyers and citizens of the world.

Together, these opportunities offer students unparalleled opportunities and provide a world stage on which the school’s students and alumni are major players in the theory and practice of law.
