Invest in Yourself for a Better World
The Columbus School of Law at The Catholic University of America offers a first-rate legal education and a visionary approach to law as a way of serving others. CUA Law students graduate with the knowledge, practical skills, and ethical foundation they need to succeed in the practice of law and in service to society.
There is no better place to attend law school than Washington, D.C., where our nation’s laws are made, executed, and interpreted. Our location near the heart of the city offers easy access to opportunities in law firms, government, corporations, and nonprofits that often lead to professional connections and postgraduate employment.
Today’s employers prefer not to provide on-the-job training. Our students master critical skills while in law school, learning by doing. Our experiential programs, clinics and externships rate among the best in the country. Courses emphasize practical skills like trial advocacy, negotiating, and legal writing. You graduate ready to practice.
