Overview

The John MarshallLaw School has been dedicated to the teaching of law since 1899. From its inception it has sought to maintain diversity in its academic programs, student body, and faculty and to provide a harmonious blend of the theory and practice of law. The school is located in the heart of Chicago‚??s legal, financial, and commercial center and offers a vibrant, cosmopolitan setting for legal study. The federal courthouse is across the street, and the nation‚??s largest circuit court, that of Cook County, is just a few blocks away. Students visit these courthouses to observe the theory and procedure they have learned in the classroom applied in a courtroom setting. Accredited by the American Bar Association, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and a member of the Association of American Law Schools, the school maintains high standards relating to entrance requirements, faculty, library, and curriculum. Graduates are eligible to take bar examinations in all jurisdictions of the United States.

 

Admission and Financial Aid

The John MarshallLaw School enrolls entering classes in August and January each year in both full- and part-time programs. The part-time program offers both day and evening divisions. A variety of financial aid programs, including loans, scholarships, grants, and need based aid, is available to John Marshall students. Merit scholarships and grants are awarded to entering students on the basis of academic achievement, undergraduate course work, and LSAT scores.

 

Enrollment/Student Body

With more than 1,500 students, The John Marshall Law School has a diverse student body. Students range in age from 20 to 68 years; minorities comprised 25% of the Fall 2007 entering class, and women accounted for 49% of those enrolled; more than 300 colleges and universities are represented by the student body; and 32% of John Marshall students are from outside Illinois.

 

Faculty

The school‚??s 71 full-time faculty, including several nationally known experts, are accomplished teachers and serious scholars in many areas of law. In addition, John Marshall‚??s adjunct faculty represents a committed group of practicing lawyers and judges who share their unique expertise with students. The vibrant legal environment in Chicago enables the law school to draw upon the talents of these professionals who bring an invaluable perspective to legal education at The John Marshall Law School.

 

Physical Facilities and Library

The law school‚??s facilities occupy three buildings in Chicago‚??s historic 9 Loop 9 district and house: classrooms; faculty offices; a courtroom equipped with a state-of-the-art audio/visual installation; an innovative, computerized classroom; a spacious student lounge; conference meeting and reception space; administrative offices; lounges for full-time and adjunct faculty; and five floors of library collections totaling nearly 50,000 square feet. The library of The John Marshall Law School provides support services for the study of law and for legal research. Library materials include more than 392,000 volumes. The John Marshall library is a selective depository of federal documents. As one of the first law schools to teach legal research on computer, John Marshall continues to provide its students with the most up-to-date computer research and reference services. The library has 80 networked computers that are available for student use; these computers allow students to access word processing software and internet resources like Lexis-Nexis, Westlaw, CALI and email. In addition, more than 1,400 students using laptops make use of the wireless internet access that is available throughout the school.

 

Curriculum and Specific Special Programs

The John MarshallLaw School provides one of the most comprehensive and aggressive professional skills training curricula in the country. The initial program for both day and evening divisions consists of a core curriculum, which provides students with a fundamental store of knowledge about substantive legal concepts. Later, students take courses they believe best suit their interests and career objectives.

 

Lawyering Skills

All students participate for four semesters in the Lawyering Skills Program. The program focuses on legal writing, research, and written and oral human advocacy. The legal writing curriculum plays a critical role in developing the professional skills of the lawyer-to-be. All courses are taught in small sections and the first semester is devoted to research skills, analysis and students learn how to brief and analyze cases, how to research and understand statutory materials, and how to draft predictive memoranda. In the second semester, students learn advanced research skills, as well as persuasive writing techniques. Students draft trial court memoranda and an appellate brief, and develop skills for oral arguments.

 

In the third semester, students learn how to organize and make complex arguments. This semester includes an intramural moot court competition. In the fourth semester, students choose either a specialized or a general drafting course. In the general drafting course, students learn how to create legal documents including wills, contracts, and other documents of general legal practice; in the specialized drafting course, students learn how to create specialized legal documents in specific legal areas. The drafting course is an advanced writing course and prepares graduates for law practice.

 

Moot Court and Law Reviews

Each year, The John Marshall Law School enters teams in more than two dozen national interscholastic competitions on appellate advocacy, trial advocacy, client counseling, and negotiations. John Marshall teams have garnered national honors based on their abilities in appellate advocacy skills, research and written briefs, and arguments before judges. The law school also hosts the annual International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law, and jointly hosts with the American Bar Association the annual National Criminal Justice Trial Advocacy Competition.

 

Based on academic achievement, students may write for The John Marshall Law Review, The John Marshall Journal of Computer and Information Law, or The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law, an on-line publication. The John Marshall Law Review publishes scholarly work on a broad range of current legal topics. Contributors are legal scholars, practitioners and John Marshall students. The John Marshall Journal of Computer and Information Law, an international law review examining recent developments in information technologies and privacy law, is one of the few legal publications of its kind. The journal combines commentary from experts in the technology and privacy fields as well as from students. The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law, founded in 2001, publishes articles on a variety of intellectual property law topics, including patent, trademark, copyrights and trade secret law.

 

Advocacy and Dispute Resolution

The John MarshallLaw School‚??s Advocacy Program coordinates theoretical and skills training programs that prepare students to function in a wide array of litigation and non-litigation advocacy roles. Our graduates are capable, courtroom-ready trial attorneys prepared through challenging curricula, intensive performance requirements and cogent critiques. Students are offered courses in trial and appellate advocacy, alternative dispute resolution, and client counseling.

 

Clinical Programs

Students can enroll in The John Marshall Fair Housing Legal Clinic or the Immigration Law Clinic, or select from a host of externship programs. The Fair Housing Legal Clinic, now in its 13th year, gives students the opportunity to earn two credit-hours by working on fair housing issues by drafting pleadings, preparing motions, participating in hearings for temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions, conducting discovery and assisting in trials and hearings. Students enrolled in the Immigration Law Clinic work with attorneys at the Midwest Immigrant & Human Rights Center developing cases using litigation skills in the administrative law context.

 

Externship programs help students learn lawyering skills working for the bench and bar. Students can select from the IRS Externship Program, the Lawyering Process, the Real Estate Legal Practicum, the Litigation Practicum, the Judicial Extern Program, Department of Labor Externship Program and Clinical Legal Education in Intellectual Property.

 

Information Technology and Privacy Law

The Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law was organized in 1983. Over the past two decades, the center has moved from concerns about computer use to a curriculum that has students investigating not only how computers are used but also how computers may intrude on one‚??s privacy. Courses focus on emerging technologies, the Internet, electronic commerce, privacy, telecommunications and information access and control. The center also has developed cross-curriculum courses with the law school‚??s intellectual property program that has students examining a range of issues, including fair use and copyright issues. J.D. students can complete a concentration in Information Technology Law. John Marshall also awards an LL.M. degree in Information Technology Law, and offers an M.S. degree in Information Technology Law for business professionals and policymakers.

International Business and Trade Law

The Center for International Business and Trade Law focuses on global issues developing around rules, regulations and legal approaches to underlying international business and trade law. Because the law school is located in the heart of Chicago, the Center‚??s faculty and guest presenters often use Chicago‚??s industrial, financial and agricultural sectors in discussing regulation and facilitation of trade, investment and corporate activity. International economic law is one of the fastest growing areas of law, and our faculty, adjuncts and guest speakers bring their personal expertise to John Marshall classrooms. J.D. students can earn a certificate in International Business and Trade Law. The law school has developed a sister school relationship with law faculties in the Czech Republic, and for nearly 15 years has been training attorneys with the State Intellectual Property Office in the People‚??s Republic of China.

 

Intellectual Property Law

The Center for Intellectual Property Law offers one of the country‚??s oldest and most prestigious intellectual property law programs in the United States. Students can focus on patent work, or select the intellectual property program that includes not only patent law but also the full scope of copyright law, trademark law, unfair competition and business facets. Cross-curriculum courses with the Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law offer students a look at how IP law is being challenged by computer uses. In 2001, students helped develop The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law, an on-line legal journal that invites professionals from around the world to share their expertise on IP topics. J.D. students can earn a certificate in Intellectual Property Law. John Marshall also awards an LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law.
