A Long Tradition of Excellence—and an Exciting Future

Founded in 1892, Case Western Reserve University School of Law was one of the first schools accredited by the American Bar Association and was a charter member of the American Association of Law Schools and the Order of the Coif. Case Western Reserve is a member of the prestigious and exclusive Association of American Universities.

But there's more to us than our history; it's our current students who will shape our future. We're incredibly proud of—and excited for—what they will bring to the legal realm.
