Academic Resources

Learn more about our approach to academics at Quinnipiac Law. As you progress through your coursework, you will reinforce a strong academic foundation in law — research, writing, analysis and oratory — by participating in mock trials, writing for our law journals and representing real clients in pro-bono legal clinics and during externships at corporations, government, nonprofits and private practices.

With multiple ways to earn a JD that aligns with your timeline and legal interests, your pathway to representing clients, impacting legislation, fighting for those without a voice and helping corporations and communities flourish starts here.
