Established in 1817, Harvard is the oldest continuously operating law school in the United States. The School provides comprehensive training to prepare its graduates for law practice, for public service at the local, state, federal and international levels, and for law teaching and legal scholarship. Through its faculty, students, and graduates, Harvard Law School seeks to make substantial contributions toward improving our knowledge and understanding of the law.


Harvard Law School is a vibrant, dynamic place with a talented and diverse student body of approximately 2,000 students, a distinguished full‑time faculty of 88 professors and assistant professors, 10 clinical and assistant clinical professors of law, and some 150 lecturers, visiting professors, clinical instructors and professors emeriti. The School's curriculum includes such diverse courses as Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Corporate Finance, Environmental Law, Negotiation, Family Law, and International and Comparative Law. In 2006, a new first‑year curriculum was approved that will add required courses in International and Comparative Law, Legislation and Regulation, and Complex Problem Solving. One of the largest Clinical Programs in the U.S. offers students a wide range of fieldwork and simulation courses as well as opportunities to participate in extracurricular practice‑related activities in Harvard‑operated legal services clinics. Among its nearly 20 research programs are programs relating to such subjects as law and economics, international financial systems, East Asian legal studies, human rights, the legal profession, and negotiation and alternative dispute resolution.


In addition to a challenging curriculum, students can choose among numerous extracurricular activities, including approximately 90 student organizations and 14 student‑edited journals. Activities range from a battered women's advocacy project to a law and technology society to intramural sports and dramatic productions.


Shaped by its role as a preeminent national law school, the School is working to strengthen its already significant global orientation. The curriculum contains some 75 courses in the international and comparative law field. With approximately 250 lawyers from more than 50 countries in the LL.M. and S.J.D. programs, the School is deeply committed to advanced legal study and scholarship.


The Harvard Law Library is the largest academic law library in the world. Its collections, numbering approximately 1.7 million volumes, support the teaching and research activities of the School and serve as a resource for legal scholars throughout the world.


The Office of Career Services provides a wide variety of placement and career counseling services to students, employers and graduates. A separate Office of Public Interest Advising helps students find government and public interest opportunities. The School's some 35,000 living alumni have distinguished careers in practice, legal education, the judiciary, government, business, and public interest organizations. Five of the current members of the Supreme Court of the United States attended Harvard Law School.


Harvard Law School's outstanding faculty and extraordinarily gifted students, its size and prodigious resources and its location at the heart of Harvard University and Cambridge contribute to its leadership role in American and international legal education.
