When our College of Law was founded, Andrew Jackson was President. John Marshall was Chief Justice, and Cincinnati was a bustling city on the frontier. Timothy Walker headed west and established a law school committed to the highest standards of legal education and scholarship. Walker’s is a quintessential American story of bold vision, strong ambition, and opportunities on the frontier.
Today, students from far and wide come to Cincinnati to be a part of our Urban Morgan Institute – the first center at an American law school dedicated to the study of international human rights. They come to work with the Lois and Richard Rosenthal Institute for Justice and its Ohio Innocence Project – a program that changes the lives of everyone it touches, and whose successes have been acclaimed nationwide. They come to work with the Corporate Law Center or the Glenn Weaver Institute for Law and Psychiatry – nationally known programs that open the College’s doors to the community and bring the law to life.
For generations, students have come to the College of Law to learn from accomplished professors. To capitalize on our purposely small size. To benefit from the powerful experiences and rich resources we offer because of our deep relationship with Cincinnati and its leaders.
Those who find the College of Law their home share a common bond. Like Timothy Walker, they come with expectations of excellence and high hopes for their future. They find opportunity here. They find their lives transformed for the better. And they enrich their community with their talents and efforts.
We hope you will enjoy exploring our website and learning more about the unique opportunities that are available here at the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
