For discerning, high-caliber students, UNC School of Law is often the perfect choice. At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law, our students receive an unrivaled legal education at a cost that is among the very lowest of any of the top-ranked law schools, and when they leave our famously beautiful campus, they do so as confident and principled advocates of justice. As the national debate about the cost of legal education and the challenging landscape for careers in law continues, the defining characteristics of UNC School of Law — an unsurpassed legal education combined with exceptional value — are more relevant than ever. Our alumni work with distinction all over the globe, and in North Carolina, no school has more graduates in positions of prominence than Carolina Law. We count many nationally renowned legal experts and leading scholars among our faculty, who know that a deep, functional and nuanced understanding of law must be accompanied by a mastery of the practical skills of lawyering. We encourage all prospective students to research the competitive landscape of legal education, and for those demanding proof of exceptional opportunity, we look forward to making our case.
