Founded in 1879, Valparaiso University Law School embraces law as a calling to leadership and service. Our legal education blends theoretical and practical skills with humanitarian values and 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 University Law School 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 learning is reflected in a cutting-edge legal writing and research program, and a re-crafted curriculum, introduced in 2013, that supports a broad range of career options within the legal profession.
