Case Western Reserve University School of Law traces its origins to 1892, when the Western Reserve University School of Law opened its doors. At a time when Cleveland was becoming a major industrial center, and consequently an important center for the practice of law, the local bar felt that the city should have its own university‑affiliated law school. The law school received its current name in 1967 when Western Reserve University merged with the Case Institute of Technology.

 

From the beginning, the school has been a leader in legal education. The school always has required a three‑year course of study, although in the late 1800's there were only half a dozen law schools requiring more than two years. Even more unusual was this school's requirement, instituted in 1911, that entering students have college degrees. At the time, only the Harvard and Columbia law schools had such a rule. The school was a pioneer in educating African‑Americans and women for the bar; it admitted its first black student in 1892 and graduated its first woman in 1921. The school was fully accredited by the American Bar Association in 1921 and is a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools and the Order of the Coif.

 

The award‑winning law school building is located in the heart of University Circle, a 500‑acre area encompassing Case Western Reserve University and 70 other educational and cultural institutions. The building itself is a modern self‑contained complex built in 1971 and expanded in 1994 to provide offices for the law journals and student organizations, a number of common areas, and small seminar rooms designed to accommodate upper‑level courses, 70 percent of which have fewer than 40 students.

 

The library is a spacious one, containing more than 365,000 books and volume‑equivalents. In addition, the school is distinguished as an electronic learning environment. Case Western Reserve University has installed a campus‑wide fiber‑optic cable network that has attracted national attention. The law school itself has computer facilities on every floor of the library, providing access to more than 700 electronic services and library catalogs, 75 CD‑ROM applications, and a wide range of software services.

 

Case School of Law offers the degrees of J.D.,and LL.M. in United States Legal Studies, as well as eight dual degrees: J.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.D., J.D./M.A. (legal history), J.D./M.A. (bioethics), J.D./M.S.S.A. (social work), J.D./M.P.H. (public health), J.D./M.S.M.‑I.S. (Information Systems) and J.D./M.N.O. (nonprofit organizations). The school's J.D. enrollment is around 640, nearly all of them full‑time students. They come from every area of the country, from nearly 200 colleges and universities, and from dozens of different majors. Women make up over half the class, and students of color make up approximately 19 percent. More than 59 percent worked between college and law school. Many had prior careers in health care, business, science and engineering, government and nonprofit management, and approximately 15 percent have advanced degrees.

 

The first‑year curriculum consists of required courses ‑ as well as one elective, including the Research, Analysis, and Writing (RAW) program, which is staffed by full‑time instructors, all experienced lawyers. Each RAW section meets in a small group. After the first year, every student must take Professional Responsibility and a course with a substantial writing requirement. Students may elect to pursue a concentration in one of seven areas: Litigation; Law, Technology, and the Arts; Criminal Law; International Law; Health Law; Business Organizations; and Public Law, with tracks in Public and Regulatory Institutions, and Individual Rights and Social Reform.

 

In addition to traditional classes in substantive law, Case offers numerous professional skills courses. The school also offers a simulation course, The Lawyering Process, in which students conduct mock interviews and client counseling sessions, and practice negotiation skills. In the Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center, students represent actual clients in a law office setting. They keep time sheets, manage files, lead case conferences, draft documents, negotiate settlements and pleas, and represent clients in court, all under the supervision of full‑time faculty who are experienced practitioners.

 

The school sponsors three student‑edited journals: Case Western Reserve Law Review, the Journal of International Law, and Health Matrix: The Journal of Law‑Medicine. Students also have the opportunity to participate in moot court and mock trial programs, as well as the Student Bar Association and nearly 40 other organizations designed to further the goals of the school and the legal community.

 

The Center for Law, Technology, and the Arts was established as an internationally‑recognized forum for the interdisciplinary study of law, technology, and the arts. The Center focuses on teaching, research, and programs pertaining to intellectual property, technological innovation and technology transfer, the intersection of science, economics, philosophy, and the law, legal issues concerning biotechnology and computer technologies, and laws and cultural issues relating to the creative arts. Through the Center, the law school is able to offer students opportunities to address important, topical issues relating to law and technology and law and the arts through a variety of courses, lectures, events, and symposia.

 

To better prepare its students and future leaders with a thorough understanding of the business issues facing entrepeneurs, entities, and other clients, the School of Law created the Center for Business Law and Regulation in Spring 2003. The center focuses on expanding curricular offerings and programs as well as engaging in opportunities for legal, empirical, and interdisciplinary research, assessing the role and impact of government in the regulation of business. The center will also host special lectures and symposia to highlight topics in business law and foster public debate and inquiry regarding business regulation.

 

The Law‑Medicine Center focuses on the whole range of legal, social, economic, scientific, and ethical issues in which law and medicine are interrelated. The Center also sponsors lectures, major conferences, and smaller forums. The Health Matrix journal further contributes to the center's goal of immersing students in a broad range of health law issues.

 

The law school also prepares students for a global practice. Frederick K. Cox International Law Center has enabled the school to strengthen even further the international law curriculum, sponsor visiting scholars from around the world, and provide study and work opportunities for students. The Canada‑U.S. Law Institute, sponsored with the law school of the University of Western Ontario, offers courses, co‑curricular programs, and student exchanges. Additionally, the War Crimes Research Office was added to the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center in 2002. The office addresses issues relating to the accountability for violations of international humanitarian law through unique programs and courses.

 

Founded in 2004, the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Conflict and Dispute Resolution (CISCDR) ‑ our newest Center of Excellence ‑ focuses on bringing greater ADR sensitivity and skill development to our students in order to prepare them for the multiple roles that they will perform as lawyers in a global economy. CISDR advances the academy's understanding of conflict, sharpens existing tools of dispute resolution, and invents new responses to conflict and dispute resolution through interdisciplinary theoretical and practical approaches.

 

Currently, the Case Western Reserve law school's full‑time faculty numbers 49. As a result, the student‑teacher ratio is about 13 to 1. In addition, there is a cadre of more than 110 adjunct faculty ‑‑ judges and practitioners who teach a skills course or a substantive course in a specialized area such as admiralty law or juvenile law.

 

Alumni of the law school work in traditional and nontraditional legal careers throughout the world. The 8,400 living alumni are lawyers in firms of all sizes from solo practice to the world's largest law firms, corporate legal departments, government, and private enterprise. They are also well represented in the judiciary, politics, education, and cultural and philanthropic institutions. Graduates of CWRU include: federal judges; all levels of local and state judges; members of Congress; officers at Fortune 500 corporations; faculty members at law schools throughout the country; and a best‑selling novelist.r
