“One of the best in the Midwest”
June 2019FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

KU Law has excellent faculty, small class sizes, and puts you in a competitive position to get a job or clerkship. The school also has a sixth semester in Washington DC program that has resulted in a significant number of KU students obtaining careers in government or policy work. Lawrence is also an awesome town.

Downers

The school's brand, while on the rise, is still not recognized as high in the rankings by publications like U.S. News and World Report.

Comments

The law school building's appearance is a turn-off for many, but its internal design is actually fantastic for allowing you to rub elbows and meet your fellow classmates, while also finding quiet places to sneak away and study.

“Exceptional Law School”
March 2018FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

The faculty was amazing as a law student and continue to be amazing as an alumnus.

Downers

Green Hall could use some updating, but this is a very smaller downer compared to the large uppers.

Comments

KU Law is an exceptional law school. From the moment I began the admissions process, the staff and faculty went out of their way to help. And they continue to help well after you graduate.

“Great Value”
October 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Great financial aid and scholarships. Excellent employment prospects in the Kansas City area.

Downers

Very regional--minimal contacts outside of Kansas City, although, the career services department is working on further outreach for employment. The school sponsored traveling OCI's this year and last, taking several students to other markets for interviews.

Comments

Great value. If you test well enough to get into a more elite university (but only barely), I would consider going to KU (probably for free) and finishing at the top of the class. A chunk of students get big firm jobs, and since those students are all at the top of the class, most of them probably went to school for free. Six figure salary and no debt. Well-respected university in the KC area, and a solid alumni network that is very supportive of the university and its students.
