- About Gonzaga Law
At Gonzaga University School of Law, legal education goes beyond classroom learning. The academic, professional and social engagement of the faculty and staff at Gonzaga Law means that students have a chance to learn from experience. The new curriculum requires that students get on-the-ground experience in the law before graduation. Gonzaga Law has made a commitment to helping students succeed both during and after law school. Being a student at Gonzaga Law means being a part of a community that gives you the tools and support you need to be the change you want to see in the world.
The faculty at Gonzaga Law School are some of the finest teachers and scholars in the country. They bring to the classroom a wealth of knowledge and practical experience, having worked in law firms, as public defenders, as government lawyers, as litigators, as transactional lawyers, and as judicial clerks. The faculty are committed to training students to be practice-ready, and their curriculum and classroom techniques serve as a model for law schools across the country.
The new curriculum, introduced in 2009 and lauded as innovative by preLaw Magazine, reinforces skills training while promoting professionalism throughout the curriculum. Every course integrates with the core values of imparting knowledge, professionalism and skill enhancement. The four-semester legal research and writing program prepares you for the work you will be doing as a lawyer, and the experiential learning requirement and lab classes challenge students to hone their skills while facing professional problems they will likely experience in their careers.
Gonzaga University School of Law expects every student to succeed. To that end, several programs have been put in place to help students during and after their time at Gonzaga Law. The Academic Resource Program provides additional tutoring and academic assistance if necessary or desired. The Alumni Mentoring Program partners practicing alumni with students, giving them an inside view of their chosen profession. The Center for Professional Development is available as early as students’ first year to help arrange internships and professional networking opportunities. Externships, both locally and as distance learning, give students a chance to work in the legal world while finishing their education.
Gonzaga Law is an American Bar Association Accredited Institution.
