The University of Wyoming's College of Law provides graduate students exceptional training and opportunities for gaining personal experience with practicing law. The UW College of Law is the smallest public law school in the country, but this offers students great advantages! As a UW Law student you benefit from:
Small class sizes, which promote student-faculty interactions and open doors to new opportunities;
Six clinics, which give students hands-on experience with case-based law;
Externship and internship programs, which give students the ability to gain real world experience before they enter the legal profession;
A Law degree without the extravagant price tag; UW Law students take out fewer loans while they receive high-quality training;
Law faculty who teach courses while maintaining active law careers in legal research and inquiry, which provides students real-time and grounded insight.
