Welcome to Pitt Law

For over a century, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law has trained the next generation of legal professionals and leaders. Today, we continue this tradition by preparing students for new and emerging opportunities in legal practice worldwide. Our renowned faculty is committed to providing innovative classroom and experiential instruction, including in-house legal clinics, to equip students with a solid foundation for their future practice. Our diverse co-curricular offerings prepare students to be the attorneys of the future while also allowing students to build relationships and community within the law school. Our centers and institutes focus on traditional and emerging practice areas, and we embrace interdisciplinary opportunities that tap into the strengths of Pitt and other universities.

Our talented team offers academic support and student wellness resources to help every Pitt Law student flourish, and our Professional Development Office provides counseling and programming to develop and advance careers. We offer extensive research and technology resources, and the distinguished teacher-scholars on our faculty deeply engage with and are part of the dialogue shaping the most significant issues facing our society.
