About Pitt Law

Since 1895, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law has been preparing students to become excellent attorneys and leaders in the legal profession and society. Known and respected globally for our scholarship, we offer quality academics, a world-class faculty, endless opportunities for hands-on learning, and exceptional career preparation and placement. Our curriculum is strong on fundamentals and embraces innovation, focusing on issues ranging from commercialization of new technologies to conflict resolution to cyber security.

We also maintain an outstanding cost-to-value ratio, and we’re committed to providing scholarships for highly qualified students through all three years. In fact, nearly 70 percent of our student body receives scholarship funds in the form of merit or need-based awards.
