Opportunities Unique to Wyoming Law

Because of the intimate nature of the UW College of Law, you will have opportunities to participate in programs, internships and experiences you can find nowhere else!  We call this Experiential Learning, which allows students to gain knowledge and experience while they explore their own legal interests outside the classroom through hands-on programs.
