Juris Doctor Degree

An education at the University of Dayton School of Law will prepare you to make an impact anywhere. We teach students how to use their knowledge of the law as a tool to help people resolve their legal problems as well as community and global issues.

So what's different about that? We believe the best way to learn is to learn by doing. So you'll work with legal professionals and observe the practical application of the legal theories you've been studying in school.

We think experiential learning is so important that we offer practical training in essential lawyering skills beginning in your first year, with our highly respected Legal Profession Program. You'll receive training in such important skills as accessing and understanding legal authority, and effectively communicating legal analysis. As a result, you'll have the chance to quickly develop the strong professional skills necessary to be effective and efficient.
