If you are thinking about law school, you need to develop your ability to write. You must be able to write clearly and correctly. You must be able to write to explain, to inform, or to persuade. You must also learn to write quickly. Law school and legal practice will require you to write often and under rigid deadlines. You should take every opportunity to work on your writing skills.

Oral communication is also an important skill of a lawyer. The law student and the lawyer must be able to present their views and those of their client clearly, forcefully, and persuasively. You must learn to speak using proper English. All of us are sometimes lazy when we speak, and we often avoid complete sentences or use slang terms. The lawyer, however, will speak in formal settings where proper English is important for effective communication. This does not mean your speech has to be stuffy or boring. But you want your law professor or the jury to concentrate on what you say and not be thinking about your poor grammar or slang expressions.

Law students at the College of Law may participate in many different student organizations and activities. These organizations and activities provide students with an opportunity to become more involved in the College and the community, to promote common goals, to share common experiences, and sometimes just to kick back and relax.

Large enough to offer students a diverse curriculum yet small enough to ensure that students are not lost in a faceless crowd, the University of Nebraska College of Law offers an educational program designed to provide its students with the intellectual and practical skills necessary to meet the diverse challenges of a legal career.

The College of Law has a rich tradition of excellence that dates back to the College's founding over a century ago. The College was founded in 1888 and became part of the University of Nebraska in 1891. The College was among the first law schools to be fully accredited by the American Bar Association (550 West North Street, Suite 349, Indianapolis, IN, 46202-3162, 317/264-8340) and was also a charter member of the American Association of Law Schools. One of the College's early deans, native Nebraskan Roscoe Pound, subsequently served as Dean of the Harvard Law School and earned a reputation as one of the foremost scholars and educators in the history of legal education.

From the days of Dean Pound to the present, the College of Law has been the professional home of an energetic and nationally recognized faculty. Like their predecessors, the current members of the faculty are strongly committed to both teaching and scholarship. Eleven members of the faculty have published textbooks used in law schools across the country. Students have the opportunity to take classes from dedicated teachers who are exploring the frontiers of the law and who are also freely available to students outside the classroom.

Located on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska, the College of Law offers the best in modern facilities. Those facilities include an extensive library, computers, modern classrooms, comfortable student lounges, offices for student organizations and the Sherman Welpton Courtroom Complex.

The Sherman Welpton Courtroom Complex includes a courtroom, jury room, conference room and judge's chambers as well as the offices of the College's Civil Clinical Program. With videotape, computer and closed circuit television equipment, the Welpton Courtroom Complex plays a vital role in the College's tradition of offering the finest in practical skills training.
