Northwestern Pritzker School of Law
Northwestern Law prides itself on having a groundbreaking curriculum that’s immersive and constantly evolving. They have nationally distinguished faculty with decades of experience and expertise.
The Law School was founded in 1859 (as the now defunct Chicago University).
It would change names several times over the years, and in 2015 named Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
The Law School was also home to the first National Conference on Wrongful Convictions and the Death Penalty in 1998, which led to the creation of the Center on Wrongful Convictions.
They have a strong commitment to a public service ethic – with multiple opportunities for students doing public service work both during and after law school.
