St. John’s University School of Law, located in Queens, N.Y., plays a prominent role in the New York legal community, imbuing all that it does with the university’s roman Catholic Vincentian tradition.

Robert Harrison, associate dean for admissions and student financial services, said what sets the school apart is the school's clinics.

“We are known by legal employers as having graduates who ‘hit the ground running,’ because the students are put into the field from the very first year,” he said.

St. John’s has a doctrinal approach to study abroad as well as the practical, which is also reflected in all of the school’s externships and centers. Clinics include Securities Arbitration, Child Advocacy, Refugee and Immigration Rights and the most popular, Elder Law.

The school has consistently placed among the top New York City schools for bar passage result, and posted an 87.8 percent pass rate in 2014. It also has one of the highest  the New York City region. The law school facility is one of the larger buidlings in the nation, with 179,000 square feet.
