UW Law has many things to be proud of, including a national reputation for affordability and for practical training. But one of the hallmark’s of the law education at this public institution is its law-in-action tradition. In addition to teaching the basics of legal rules, students learn why those rules evolved to address social concerns and how they operate in the real world. Students leave empowered to navigate an increasingly complex and challenging world. What graduates won’t need to do is study for the Wisconsin bar: The university’s Diploma Privilege allows graduates to secure a license to practice in the state without taking a bar exam.
