Centers and Resources
The School of Law Center is designed to foster collaboration and innovation. The building is thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of today’s law student, with classroom, study, library and social spaces that are both inspirational and practical. And because it is located on the North Haven Campus, our students take advantage of interdisciplinary learning opportunities with students and faculty from other disciplines including medicine, nursing, health sciences, social work and education.
Two centers of unique academic strength — one in health law, the other in dispute resolution — provide enriched opportunity for students interested in those important fields. More than 30 student organizations (including nationally recognized Moot Court and Mock Trial societies) and three student-edited scholarly journals make a strong case: A legal education here goes beyond the walls of the classroom, and you are an integral part of the curriculum. And this promise from our Office of Student Affairs: When you’re here, our staff will be there — for you.
This is what we represent
The School of Law teaches that everybody deserves a fair shot in the legal system, and the work we do in the community reflects that core principle. You'll have opportunities to serve real clients in our six separate clinics, where you'll interview them, prepare oral arguments, draft documents and appear before judges on their behalf.
You'll also have a chance to write for our journals in probate and health law, and for the Quinnipiac Law Review, all of which make important contributions to the world of legal scholarship.
