You Won't Get Lost Along The Way.

You've already gone the extra mile to prepare yourself to be a top law student. So why not take another step to make sure you go to the law school that's the right fit for you? At the University of Dayton School of Law, we are small by design so you can get the individualized instruction you desire to reach your full potential.

Two Options To Earn Your Degree

You can either take classes in Dayton as a residential student and then return to Jacksonville after graduation or you can take our Online Hybrid J.D. which will allow you to take all your classes from Jacksonville with only three visits a year to Dayton for Get Relevant Experience and Applied Learning (REAL) weekends.

Gain Experience In Jacksonville

Our students have volunteered with Jacksonville Area Legal Aid doing remote legal research and writing. We can also connect you with various law firms in Jacksonville so that you can do your externship near your home. That way you can get to know people in the legal field there. In addition, our Career Services Office helps students find employment across the country and can give you the support you need to get a job there after graduation.
