Overview

Become part of a community, not just a class

From classmates who will become friends for life to administrators and faculty members who go out of their way to get to know you, your years at Quinnipiac will be defined by a sense of community.

Here, you will be surrounded not by competitors but by fellow colleagues who are hard workers from all walks of life, from military veterans to first-generation college students to former arts and engineering majors to evening students with full-time jobs. They will challenge, inspire and support you, and share in your success.

The uncommon power of a common campus

The School of Law is strategically situated with other graduate programs on an integrated campus, creating an exceptional environment for advanced professional study and daily opportunities for interdisciplinary learning.

Our location brings law students together in the same facility with medical and nursing students, as well as students preparing to be physical therapists, occupational therapists, diagnosticians, radiologists, teachers and social workers. Students study, dine and grow together. It’s an advantage found at few other law schools in the country.

Our Students

We’re in this together

Quinnipiac law students describe themselves as people who know how to work. We know them to be smart, savvy and determined. They have grit, something you can’t test for. Here, students work together and support each other daily.

“It’s not accurate to simply call Quinnipiac ‘tolerant.’ It goes way beyond tolerance. The people here are accepting. They are embracing. They understand the value of having a range of identities and orientations when you’re studying laws and policies.”

Center of it all

Our North Haven Campus offers a variety of spots to collaborate — including several outdoor patios.

Location, location, location

Our beautiful North Haven Campus was intentionally designed for graduate students. With cutting-edge resources and facilities, it includes spaces built for collaboration as well as quiet, reflective study. It’s an oasis in one of the most powerful regions of legal and commercial activity in the country.

Throughout the region, you’ll find an array of world-class restaurants, museums and theaters — as well as places for active, indoor and outdoor recreation. Long Island Sound is only a 15-minute drive — and Boston and New York City are just short train rides away.

Mentorship Program

Invested in you from the start

The Day One Mentoring program is an optional offering that pairs an admitted student with current students and a faculty member — from the moment you send your deposit to Quinnipiac.

Your mentors will offer guidance on everything related to first-year student life. The faculty member remains a trusted resource and mentor throughout the entire law school experience, along with the growing network of supportive connections that surround our students.

This support is a key part of what’s different here — and an important reason our graduates are so well prepared when they enter the job market.

A helping hand

Professor Carolyn Kaas talks with Alexandra Arroyo, JD ’18, on the North Haven Campus. Hailing from Texas, Arroyo was concerned about making the transition to life in a new state. Kaas offered her practical help and advice on issues from which classes to take and where to live. It’s just one of the examples of the above-and-beyond attitude that students can expect of faculty here.
