Basic Information

Quinnipiac University School of Law takes pride in its small size and ability to work closely with students. It is one of the smallest schools in the Northeast, with its upper-level courses averaging enrollments of about 18 students.

The central characteristic driving teaching and learning at Quinnipiac is faculty accessibility. Quinnipiac has an 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio, and faculty place great emphasis on interactions with students outside the classroom.   

“Many alums and current students tell us that the extraordinary connection they make with faculty members is among the high points of their legal education,” said Interim Dean Brad Saxton. 

PreLaw ranked the school as having the third best facility in the nation. It offers 494 square feet per student, and the library has more seats than the number of enrolled students.

Quinnipiac Law offers a wide array of experiential learning opportunities, including 300-plus externship sites; competition teams in moot court, mock trial, and dispute resolution; and a variety of innovative courses that combine theory with practical learning. 

“Our interdisciplinary campus facilitates our emphasis on contextualized legal analysis,” Saxton said. "Law students have the opportunity to learn side by side with graduate and professional students from other disciplines, including medicine, nursing, health sciences, social work and education."

The school’s JD/MBA program provides additional opportunities for law students to place their legal training in the context of business planning and strategy. 

Clinical faculty ensure that students receive high quality work assignments in all clinical programs. Through seminar meetings within the law school, students have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on their experiences in the field – a practice that builds a sense of professionalism and instills habits of lifelong learning.
