University of Toledo (College of Law)

Many organizations have distinguishing qualities that separate them from the pack. Ours is a commitment to total student support. We know that your choice of a law school can impact your entire professional career and the quality of your life. Our approach offers basic, common sense solutions that are totally focused on our students.

First, and foremost, we offer a quality academic program that produces quality results. We do this with small classes and personal student-to-faculty engagement above and beyond the classroom. At the College of Law, you will not be another widget on an assembly line. You will be personally challenged to be the best that you can be.

Want Creativity and Diversity?
Unlike many public law schools, the composition of our faculty and student body is truly national. Nearly all of our distinguished faculty and approximately two-thirds of our student body are from outside the local area. We think this diversity makes for an interesting and stimulating exposure. It nurtures a creative atmosphere where new experiences, insights and ideas flourish. Our unique placement program utilizes alumni to assist current students in their job searches and provides employment opportunities throughout the country.

We work extremely hard to provide an affordable education without sacrificing quality. As you begin your career and personal life, you will not be faced with a large obligation that may take years to repay. Scholarships in excess of $1,500,000 are regularly awarded each year to first year students. Night classes, conducted by full-time faculty members, offer flexibility for students with jobs. Finally, Toledo, Ohio offers the vibrancy of a large city with a smaller town atmosphere of friendliness and affordability.

The faculty's primary emphasis is to provide a quality education for each of its students through a meaningful classroom experience. Teaching at Toledo begins with the construction of a solid foundation in basic legal rules and principles and progresses to an examination of difficult concepts and theories. Students are taught to think and write clearly, to reason abstractly, and to be effective advocates. The faculty, therefore, blends an emphasis on "practical" learning with a concentration on "theoretical" analysis needed for a successful career and essential for intellectual growth and stimulation. An extensive curriculum covers the traditional subjects of legal education and incorporates the development of professional legal skills and values.

The College of Law requires the successful completion of 89 semester hours for graduation. Because of a favorable student faculty ratio and wide-ranging interests of the faculty, the College of Law is able to offer a great variety of courses. The curriculum in the first year of the full-time program and the first two years of the part-time program consists of required courses.

To become eligible for recommendation for the Juris Doctor (JD) degree, a student admitted or readmitted or reinstated on a fresh start basis to the College of Law for the 1998 fall semester or thereafter must complete 89 semester hours of credit; a student admitted or readmitted or reinstated on a fresh start basis prior to the 1998 fall semester must complete 87 semester hours of credit.

The University of Toledo College of Law makes full use of the newest technology for teaching and research.

- Smart Boards. Each classroom is equipped with a Smart Board, allowing the teacher to seamlessly bring the Web, DVDs, Power Point presentations and other multimedia into classroom discussions.

- Online Research. You get free access to LEXIS and Westlaw to allow you to do online legal research from home or from school. And you. will receive extensive instruction on how to use these legal data bases.

- Cyberlaw Courses. We offer a wide variety of courses in cyberlaw topics to prepare you to practice law in the new world of technology. Some of these are offered as "Flex courses" so you can take them in concentrated time frames if you prefer instead of taking a semester-long course.

- Technology and the Law. We integrate cyberlaw issues into many of our traditional courses so that you will understand the impact of technology on all aspects of the law.

- Faculty Resarch. Faculty are engaged in research on cutting edge issues of cyberspace. They have authored nationally acclaimed books and articles on these issues.

- Cybersecurities Law Institute. The University of Toledo's Cybersecurities Law Institute is a nationally recognized resource for the media and for others interested in the impact of Internet technology on the stock market.

- E-texts. You can obtain online access to the full text of books and journals in law-related areas through your free access to Ohio Link.

We do not use technology as a replacement for personal interaction between faculty and students in class and outside of class.
