Established in 1897, the University of Illinois College of Law is one of the oldest and best-known law schools in the nation.
Illinois was one of the small number of charter members and founders of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) and was on the first national list of law schools approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). Illinois is the home of the founding chapter of the law honor society now known as the Order of the Coif, has been the home to many of the nation’s great law textbook and treatise writers, and is the birthplace of the interdisciplinary movements such as law and economics and law and psychology.
The College is approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association. For more information, contact:
