Quinnipiac University School of Law is the law school of the Quinnipiac University. The School is the youngest law school in the U.S. state of Connecticut, having received full accreditation from the American Bar Association in 1995. It is a member of the Association of American Law Schools.

The most recent annual U.S. News & World Report law school rankings placed Quinnipiac higher than past years. The 2008 ranking showed a marked improvement, with the law school moving up eight spots to #108 from the previous year. The Princeton Review, rated the School of Law as one of the nation’s outstanding law schools, featuring the school in the 2009 edition of “Best 174 Law Schools”. The Princeton Review’s editors praised Quinnipiac's wide variety of courses and small class size. "There are ample opportunities to study any legal subject which interests you." Classes are intimate and "the small size of the academic universe here at QUSL makes it nearly impossible for a student to be lost in the mix." Editors mentioned Quinnipiac's "outstanding" clinics and externship programs, which provide "plenty of hands-on practical learning." The editors also noted the law school's approachable and student-oriented faculty members. The book quoted one student who said, "To be able to sit down, one on one, with some of these people is mind-blowing."

The university offers three degree programs: The Juris Doctor (J.D.), the J.D./Master of Business Administration (MBA) double degree program, and the Master of Laws (LL.M) in health law. Students may have concentrations in civil advocacy and dispute resolution, criminal law and advocacy, family and juvenile law, health law, intellectual property, and tax.


The Quinnipiac University School of Law offers fall enrollment for both full-time day and part-time evening students.

Admission is very competitive. For Fall 2009, we received more than 2,800 applications for a 1L class of approximately 160 members. We admit those applicants who have the most potential to emerge from the law school experience as excellent, responsible lawyers.
The most important factors considered are:
  • Undergraduate scholastic record
  • Law School Admission Test scores

The School also weigh factors such as:
  • Applicant's personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Advanced degrees
  • Life and work experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body

We operate under a rolling-admission system, but have a priority application deadline of March 1 for fall admission and scholarship. Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards and Faculty Fellows awards should apply by Feb. 1.

Quinnipiac University School of Law supports equality of educational and employment opportunity. No person shall be denied admission to any educational program or activity or be denied employment on the basis of race, color, handicap, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.
