Our innovative curriculum, highly-accomplished faculty, and experiential learning opportunities prepare you with the legal doctrine, theoretical framework, and practical training you need to practice law with efficiency and confidence.

A New Approach to Academic Excellence

Our innovative technologies support face-to-face classroom sessions and encourage increased student-faculty contact outside of class. It’s the ideal program for Juris Doctor students who want to learn at a deeper, more meaningful level.

“I asked our graduates why they chose St. Francis and what they hoped to accomplish and experience during their time with us. They all told me that they looked for a high-quality law school which would allow them to learn the law and manage the rest of their life- that is their professional life, and their personal life.”
