University of North Carolina School of Law

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the nation's oldest, and clearly one of its most accomplished, public institutions. From the colonial period until the present day, graduates from the University's School of Law have played powerfully disproportionate roles in leading the state, the south and the nation. Our law faculty includes world-class scholars, award-winning teachers and noted practitioners. Carolina Law's student body is among the most highly credentialed and intellectually diverse in America. Our signature offerings in civil rights, banking, intellectual property, entrepreneurial and securities law, critical studies, bankruptcy, and constitutional inquiry are among the best to be found in the academy. And our expansive array of skills and capstone courses provides impressive links between theory and practice. Carolina is a remarkable place to study law.
