The University of Akron is one ot the top schools for practical training in the region, having earned an A- in 2018. The school's education philosophy is about merging theory, policy and practice. 

Many of the school’s programs are focused on issues that are important to Akron’s booming biomedical industry, such as intellectual property and public health law. The curriculum is focused on fields of law that meet regional needs but at the same time, have a national impact.
