University of Notre Dame Law School

We aspire to be a premier law school, as well as an integral part of a great university which claims the Catholic tradition as part of its intellectual heritage. As a scholarly community, we seek to become key participants in the most important academic conversations in our fields. As a professional school, we aim to bridge the worlds of theory and practice, facilitating the interchange of information between the academy and the corridors of political and legal power. Our Catholic tradition, which spans the globe and embraces believers from all races, cultures, and levels of economic development, leads us to strive to broaden and deepen our academic and practical understanding by drawing upon the unique resources of our religious tradition and the traditions of other faiths. Committed to the most demanding standards of scholarly inquiry, we seek to illustrate the possibilities of dialogue between and integration of reason and faith.
