ABOUT VALPARAISO UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL
Founded in 1879, Valparaiso University Law School is the 38th oldest American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school in the United States. A Midwestern school committed to diversity and service, Valparaiso University Law School attracts students and faculty with broadly different backgrounds and perspectives. They are natural leaders who are called to the law to help people and serve society as a whole. Valparaiso Law established its legal clinic in 1967, and was among the first law schools to serve the public through legal clinics that provide low-cost or no-cost representation by licensed law students. This commitment to practical education is reflected in an innovative curriculum, introduced in 2013, that supports a broad range of career options within the legal profession.
