St. John's University School of Law
Situated in on a park-like campus in Queens, “The World’s Borough,” St. John’s Law is a close-knit community that reflects the richness and diversity of our dynamic New York City home. We take a balanced approach to legal education, starting with the fundamentals of legal analysis, legal doctrine, and legal writing, and moving on to hands-on learning through advanced courses, in-house and partner clinics, externship placements, advocacy competitions, student-run journals, and academic centers and institutes. Our students also gain an expansive view of the law as participants in global programs that include study abroad, international practicum, and skills-based courses. Our offerings focus on developing the practical skills, targeted expertise, and professional connections our students need to graduate practice-ready. As they build their lawyering skillset, our students get vital, individualized support from dedicated career counselors and from our strong network of 16,000+ alumni so they can identify and pursue a career pathway that suits them. Whatever professional path they take, our students carry with them St. John's Vincentian values, understanding that law is a vocation through which they can live justly and better the world.
