SIU School of Law prides itself on being a collaborative, tight-knit community that allows students to thrive. Through relationships, experiences, and connections, the SIU Law opens doors so students can navigate their career on their terms.
SIU School of Law offers a tuition rate that is among the lowest in the country. Our graduates typically have a debt load below the national law school average. That means our graduates have more freedom to chart their career paths.
Members of SIU Law faculty include scholars nationally recognized in their fields. Our faculty has established strong relationships and deep connections to the legal profession that they’re willing to share with students. Our professors are known not only for their legal scholarship, but also for their love for and commitment to excellent teaching.
An esteemed Lawyering Skills Program, strong moot court (appellate and trial advocacy) programs, and a guaranteed externship or legal clinic opportunity ensure that we bridge the gap between theory and practice. These and other programs prepare our graduates to function effectively as professionals. National Jurist magazine has recognized SIU as a “Best School for Practical Training” three years in a row.
Our powerful alumni network is a great tool that assists current students and recent graduates in a variety of ways, including externships and employment opportunities in both the public and private sectors. Alumni practice law in 49 of the 50 states and internationally in more than 10 countries. More than 100 alumni have held federal and state judgeships.
