Meet Our Deans

Dean Scharf and Dean Berg

Welcome to Case Western Reserve University School of Law. We are glad you are taking the time to get to know more about us.

What you find on these webpages may surprise you. For example, did you know that we are one of the oldest law schools in the United States? That our faculty is ranked 32nd best in the nation in scholarly impact? That we are recognized as a national leader in experiential education? That 90 percent of our recent graduating class were employed within ten months of graduation? Here you can find 10 things you might not know about CWRU Law.

This website is a good place to start to get to know us. We hope you will like what you see and follow-up by scheduling an in-person visit. You can sit in on a class, check out our vibrant University Circle neighborhood and meet our faculty and staff.

One of the things we hear most from students who visit us from around the nation and the world is how they feel at home when they are here. That’s how your law school experience should be. Our door is always open to you.

So, again, welcome to our law school. And welcome to the first step of your exciting, successful legal career with us.
