The University of Colorado Law School is a nationally recognized innovator and regional leader in the changing legal landscape. Founded in 1892 at the gateway to the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado Law delivers high value to its students and serves its communities through the quality of its scholarship, teaching, and curriculum.

The world of legal education faces a series of disruptive changes. Challenges to law schools include increasing student debt and, in recent years and likely for the near future, a more difficult employment environment for newly minted law school graduates.  Colorado Law is well positioned to continue to provide its students with a high-value experience at a reasonable cost.  Notably, we benefit from very talented students, faculty, and staff, a desirable location, and a relatively lean cost structure (including limited reliance on already limited and disappearing state support).

For Colorado Law to thrive, we must, at a minimum, continue to attract outstanding applicants, offer a high-value and affordable education to our students, and place students into satisfying jobs after graduation. Our initial efforts focused principally on career placement are already bearing important and encouraging results; these results underscore that a team effort and well executed strategy can enable us to adapt to a changing environment.
