KU Law is a public law school that proudly embraces its public mission to provide a high quality, affordable legal education. We offer six certificate programs, including elder law, environmental and natural resources law, international trade and finance, media law and policy, tax law, and tribal law and governance, and eight dual degrees, including business, economics, health administration, indigenous nations, journalism, philosophy, public administration, social welfare, or urban planning. Our clinical and externship programs enable you to begin your legal training by prosecuting criminals or by representing inmates, by serving in a judge's chambers, or by providing legal services to the poor. You can participate in legislation or law reform in the Legislative Clinic or the Public Policy Clinic. Yet, tuition and fees are one-third to one-half the cost of a comparable private school. You will receive an excellent, affordable legal education in a supportive learning community at KU.
