Catholic University’s law school community has long appreciated the beauty of its home, wrapped as it is around a glass-roofed four story atrium, featuring open and inviting spaces, high tech capabilities, a gorgeous library, and amenities such as an onsite cafeteria and access to fitness facilities.
The Columbus School of Law's building has been ranked #19 in “Best Law School Buildings,” in the spring, 2018 issue of preLaw magazine. The law school’s Top 20 ranking lands it in the “A” group, alongside the facilities of such law schools as Yale, Notre Dame, and Villanova. PreLaw conducted a comprehensive survey of the nation’s 200-plus law schools to identify the very best facilities. The survey ranked buildings based on aesthetics, technology, libraries, and amenities.
The article noted, "When applying to law school, it is important to consider the academic rigor of each school, its employment statistics and its bar-passage rate. But don't forget that once law school starts, you could be spending 40 to 60 hours a week there. You may spend more time – at least awake time – there than you do home."
CUA Law's students also enjoy the beauty and serenity of the University's 176-acre parklike campus, and the excitement of being in a truly global city (Washington, D.C.).
