Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Law School. We know that you
have many choices for law school, and that your decision may be a
difficult one, but we are confident that you will find Wisconsin an
exceptional place to study law.
We believe that we are putting together

you will be a part of it. As you prepare for your
transition to Madison and to the Law School, here is some information

Reflections from current students
Global, connected community
"I chose Wisconsin because it's a great public university in the Midwest with the friendliest staff and faculty, as well as a reputation for welcoming diverse students. Plus, UW Law offers a wide range of clinical opportunities including an immigration clinic, an area of law that I care deeply about and that many other law schools do not offer."
"Tax 1 with Professor Schnerr was my favorite class. It was terrifying in some ways, but I appreciated that we worked through problems. It's a really effective way of learning legal analysis. It was the hardest class I've ever taken, but everyday I was excited."
Supportive academic environment
"After only one year in Madison, I already have a solid group of attorneys who have become friends and mentors interested in my professional development. Such a network of helpful colleagues would have been impossible but for my extensive involvement in student chapters of professional organizations."
