The S.J. Quinney College of Law is located in Salt Lake City, a progressive state capital and regional economic epicenter, which serves as a focal point of growth for a diverse metropolitan area. Resting in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, the College of Law serves as a gateway to campus. A Tier-1 Research Institution and member of the Pac-12, the University of Utah is home to leading genetics and medical research, biotechnology, business, and all the diversity in academic excellence you’d expect from a flagship university.

But it’s not just about schoolwork. Utah is home to world-class outdoor recreation and spectacular landscapes. The University of Utah’s Student Life Center is a state-of-the-art health, fitness, and lifestyle complex featuring intramural sports, exercise and weight rooms, and equipment rental programs that help students enjoy these amazing outdoor activities.

With one of the lowest student-to-full-time-faculty ratios of any law school, we provide a personalized education that allows every student to achieve their best—no one gets lost in the crowd. Here, you can craft an education based on your interests. With classes and seminars in subjects as wide-ranging as adoption law to water law, we offer something for just about anyone’s passion.

We made history in 2019 when naming Elizabeth Kronk Warner as our first Native American and female dean.  We are focused on increasing diversity, equity and inclusion at the law school and care deeply about well-being initiatives. Those efforts add to a strong curriculum and the College of Law’s reputation as a best value law school, where students leave with less debt than the national average. 

We pride ourselves in our small classes, engaged teaching, and active learning style. Our accomplished faculty includes some of the nation’s leading legal scholars, who love to see their students thrive, inquire, and succeed. Within this setting, students here know and feel our core mission: To make sure that every student has the best opportunities possible to succeed.  Besides the jaw-dropping mountains surrounding our LEED-platinum law building, there are countless reasons that S.J. Quinney is the perfect environment for a law school.
