Building a new generation of lawyer-leaders

Elon University School of Law prepares students to be exceptional lawyers through a rigorous core curriculum, including a leadership program that equips students to address regional, national and global challenges, in an environment that emphasizes innovative teaching and an array of field-based experiences.

Student learning is enriched through a close association with the faculty, who provide global perspectives and a commitment to innovative teaching, scholarship and service. Students benefit from regular interaction with leaders in law, business and civic life, including members of the law school’s advisory board, chaired by a former adviser to four U.S. presidents, and including a former North Carolina governor, three former Chief Justices of the North Carolina Supreme Court, the Chair of the American Red Cross and a past president of the American Bar Association.

Students engage the law through clinics, moot court, trial advocacy and field-placement programs, as well as a preceptor program through which more than 50 attorneys serve as mentors to law students from the start of their law school experience.

Elon Law building exteriorThe law school's new, high-tech facilities in downtown Greensboro, NC include the North Carolina Business Court, making Elon Law one of the few law schools in the country to house a working court.

The law school was established in 2006 and hosted a dedication ceremony headlined by U.S. Supreme Court Justice (ret.) Sandra Day O’Connor. 

Elon Law places leadership and professionalism at the center of its mission and purpose, developing lawyers with the knowledge, skill and vision to lead and to serve.
