Nicole Dwyer became the first Quinnipiac student to finish the innovative 3+3 program in five years — a year sooner than the program’s accelerated pace. After earning her bachelor of arts in political science in 2016, she walked across the stage with her juris doctor this spring.
A dynamic community of passionate difference makers
Quinnipiac University School of Law is at the forefront of a rapidly changing legal landscape. With continued shifts in health care, immigration, human rights and cyber-crime law, exciting career opportunities are emerging for those who are well prepared.
Our ABA-approved curriculum blends strong academics with a range of experiential learning opportunities. As you master the law, you’ll have many chances to apply what you've learned — in our pro-bono legal clinics and student-run organizations, through externships at firms, courts, corporations and nonprofits, or during a national legal competition. You'll be led by distinguished, accessible faculty who are experienced in specialties ranging from immigration to labor law.
Our scenic, interprofessional campus — situated north of New Haven, between New York City and Boston — is composed of graduate students from medicine, health sciences, nursing and education. This creates a powerful learning environment that emphasizes integrative learning and creative problem solving.
If you’re passionate about affecting positive change and thrive in an environment that fosters collaboration and connection, we invite you to take a closer look.
