At Case Western Reserve University School of Law, students work with real clients beginning in their first year of law school – an initiative that began during the 2014-15 academic year.
In the first year of our required lawyering experience, 153 students worked in the Cleveland community and served unrepresented individuals facing significant legal issues.
Case Western Reserve University School of Law tied for the No. 25 spot in scholarly impact, according to the Sisk study released in August 2015 in Brian Leiter’s Law School Reports.
The ranking is based on mean and median citations to tenured faculty scholarship since 2010. Case Western Reserve’s latest ranking marks a leap of more than a dozen percentage points, and it is the only law school in Ohio to rank in the top 25.
Law school offers free online course "Representing the Professional Athlete."
Challenging sports marketing and investment decisions can make or lose athletes millions of dollars and affect their career. Athletes and the professionals who represent them know this better than anyone, and that’s exactly from whom students will learn when they enroll in the law school’s new free online course, called a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
