Stanford Law School, Stanford, CA

Stanford began offering a curriculum in legal studies in 1893, when the university engaged its first two law professors. One was Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, who delivered a landmark series of the Constitution. The other was Nathan Abbott, who served as head of the nascent law program.

At Stanford Law School, the faculty and students, influential alumni, dedicated staff are united in its belief that a Stanford Law degree is a powerful tool for change. The School's programs -intensive curriculum, hands-on legal clinics, high-profile academic centers - cultivate professional skills and values, inspire new ideas, and engage leaders in developing solutions. And its resources - from cutting-edge facilities to the diverse advantages of Stanford University - make the Stanford Law campus an ideal environment for exploring and mastering the law.

Excellence, innovation, and a commitment to the future - these are Stanford Law School's legacy to each new generation of law students and lawyers.
