Basic Information
Religious Affiliation: 



Barry University's Dwayne O. Andrea School of law located in Orlando, Florida is the 6th most diverse campus in the nation according to preLaw magazine. Almost 50 percent of the school's total enrollment are minorities.

Barry Law is the only Dominican Law School in the United States and the first American Law School to be part of a university founded by religious women.

The Adrian Dominican Sisters founded the school as a Catholic institution for higher education in 1940.

With the 2011 completion of a three-story Legal Advocacy Center, the law school's 20-acre campus in Orlando is transforming into a state-of-the-art complex that is the focal point for legal resources, services, and knowledge in Central Florida.

Dean Leticia Diaz said opportunities to excel abound at Barry Law.

"With our Children and Family Law Clinic and a number of clinical placements available, students gain first-hand practical experience in litigation, judicial research, and mediation," she said. "Our student trial and appellate teams are achieving record performances at regional and national competitions as evidenced by our national championship in the National Tax Law Moot Court Competition and placement in the Final Four out of 223 teams in the Association of Trial Lawyers America's (ATLA) National Trial Competition. Barry Law is also very proud of the Center for Earth Jurisprudence, a visionary research and education center currently being developed to prepare lawyers for the ecology-related challenges we face in the future."
