USD School of Law - Leading the Way
As a world-class center for legal education, USD School of Law is making a profound impact around the globe through the work of our distinguished faculty, talented students and innovative centers and programs. We are educating future leaders while seeking solutions to some of today’s largest legal challenges.
Students Leading the Way
Our students amplify the School of Law’s existing national reputation for excellence in many ways. They garner numerous awards in legal competitions such as international moot court and national mock trial competitions. In 2009, legal clinic students worked a collective 16,692 hours, providing more than $2 million in pro-bono legal services for low-income members of our community. The expansion of student support services and programs is vital as we continue to educate tomorrow’s leaders. Private support is essential to provide scholarships, expand existing programs or respond to emerging opportunities.
Faculty Leading the Way
USD School of Law is home to one of the highest ranked faculties in the country, and their expertise is sought after by scholars, corporate leaders, government officials and organizations from around the globe. Faculty members at the School of Law inspire students through their commitment to excellence in the classroom and benefit our greater legal community through their prodigious research and scholarship. Attracting and retaining world-class scholars to our faculty remains a top priority for the law school. We welcome your support to help us build on our already world-class faculty by expanding summer research projects and establishing new endowed professorships.
Programs Leading the Way
Whether it’s our new Center for Intellectual Property Law and Markets, the Energy Policy Initiatives Center, the Children’s Advocacy Institute, our legal clinics or our Center for Corporate and Securities Law, USD School of Law is at the forefront in addressing some of the most pressing legal issues of our time. Our burgeoning programs have helped reap national attention for our law school and will continue to provide significant exposure to the groundbreaking work taking place at the School of Law.
