Study Law at the University of Wyoming!

The University of Wyoming College of Law offers a high quality legal education at one of the lowest tuition rates in the country.  Located in the Rocky Mountains only a short drive from Denver, the UW College of Law is known for its top programs, intimate family-like atmosphere, innovative skills training, affordability, and overall student satisfaction. 

By selecting the University of Wyoming, you can obtain an unsurpassed return on your educational investment and take advantage of:

  • A low student-faculty ratio resulting in small classes, personalized instruction, easy access to faculty, and a wealth of hands-on practical training opportunities.  Our entire student body is approximately 225 law students.
  • Access to extensive “real world” training opportunities including clinics, practicums, externships, an intensive trial advocacy institute, local and trans-national negotiation exercises, and others. These experiences allow our students to hit the ground running upon entering practice.
  • Extensive course offerings from renowned experts in energy, natural resources, environment, business, legal writing, family law, criminal law, international law, and other areas.
  • Personalized career guidance and close interaction with attorneys, judges, and policymakers in the region and across the globe, to maximize employment opportunities upon graduation.
  • Joint degree programs in natural resources (JD/MA Environment & Natural Resources), business (JD/MBA), and public administration (JD/MPA).
  • A Law degree without the extravagant price tag; UW Law students take out fewer loans while they receive high-quality training,
  • The opportunity to hear distinguished speakers and attend court proceedings, including during Law Week, and throughout the year.


In providing a quality and hands-on legal education experience, the University of Wyoming is also committed to transparency as well as complete and accurate consumer information. In compliance with American Bar Association (ABA) rules and regulations, the ABA's Standard 509 Information Report and the ABA Employment Summary Reports are available. This information was compiled from the information that we submitted in our most recent ABA Annual Questionnaire. It contains data regarding the following:

  • Admissions Data
