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.
