University of Miami School of Law's remarkable journey from small beginnings to one of the leading law schools in the country is one of the fascinating stories of legal education. The School of Law began with a small graduating class of fourteen students more than three-quarters of a century ago. But its ambitions have always been large, and its success has matched those ambitions.
Today Miami Law is one of the nation's leading institutions of legal education. Faculty members are leaders in their scholarly and professional fields which benefits the highly talented and diverse student body through a rich and challenging curriculum and a wide variety of professional skills training opportunities. More than 17,000 alumni practicing throughout the United States and in nearly eighty countries around the world – in all fields of practice from corporate to public interest law, in large firms, private practice, government service or as sole practitioners – can attest to the excellence of the education they received.
