Name of School - Second: 

University of Nebraska Lincoln College of Law

We are just the right size for a law school, large enough to provide a curriculum to satisfy virtually every taste, but small enough to be a real community. We know each other here. Faculty members know students by name; students know each other well; I know most students by sight, if not by name. If you would prefer to be a number, this is definitely not the place for you. I invite you to explore the College through this website or, even better, to visit us in person. You will discover that the College is an inviting and exciting community. I welcome you to come see for yourself that "There is No Place Like Nebraska."
