Why Wisconsin?

At UW Law, innovation is nothing new.  Our hallmark law-in-action approach to teaching makes UW Law a different kind of law school. It means students learn not only legal rules, but also why those rules evolved to address social concerns, and how those rules operate in the real world. And UW Law School faculty are—and always have been—innovators who put student learning first.
