Part of a university that has been educating students for nearly 130 years, St. Thomas is an urban law school in Minneapolis, Minnesota — a major metropolitan area in the American Midwest known for its Fortune 500 companies, highly educated population, magnificent lakes and parks, and nationally renowned cultural institutions.
The School of Law offers small class sizes and a supportive network of professors, mentors and alumni. Here, we don’t just teach you about the law – we also work to build integrity, teamwork, and business acumen. Business clients want lawyers who know about the law, but who also know how to deal with people. As a Catholic law school, St. Thomas excels in both. In short, we give you the experiences and coaching you need to become an excellent international lawyer. And we offer generous scholarships for outstanding applicants.
