The University of St. Thomas School of Law, as a Catholic law school, is dedicated to integrating faith and reason in the search for truth through a focus on morality and social justice.
This mission guides our efforts to provide an innovative curriculum that emphasizes professional formation and the education of the whole person. We strive to help each student develop the professional and ethical values that are vital to long-term success in our profession, enabling them to become lawyers who lead their communities by serving them.
Twice a year Mission Roundtable lunches bring in speakers to address an aspect of the mission followed by a small group discussion among students, faculty and staff. The annual Mission Award Ceremony recognizes individuals or groups of students, faculty, adjuncts, staff and alumni who have excelled in one of four categories: Living the Mission, Excellence in Professional Preparation, Scholarship Engagement and Societal Reform and Service and Community.
