A Supportive Law School
The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law is located in Washington, D.C., the heart of America’s legal, political, and judicial system. The University’s verdant 176-acre campus, located just north of Capitol Hill, allows students easy access to the wide range of educational, cultural, and political opportunities that Washington, D.C., has to offer.
Where else can you benefit from a superbly crafted legal curriculum, a supportive and community-oriented learning environment, and also enjoy access to an astonishing range of externships that will provide a competitive edge in your future career?
Catholic University law students supplement rigorous classroom learning with opportunities to observe and experience firsthand the formation and application of law in a variety of settings: in Congress, at the Supreme Court, at the White House, at federal government agencies and courts, at some of the nation’s best-known law firms, and at corporations and nonprofit organizations.
Our students graduate practice-ready. The law school will help you to obtain the kind of experiential opportunities that will allow you to respond to a prospective employer’s question, “Can you develop the skills to handle this job?” with the honest answer, “I already have.”
Our network of accomplished alumni — many of whom live and practice in the greater Washington, D.C., region — stands ready to assist newer members of the Catholic Law community when the time comes to establish their careers.
As a student here, you will become a part of more than 100 years of a proud tradition of excellence in legal education. You will leave equipped with practice skills, friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime.
