Harvard Law School provides unmatched opportunities to study law and related disciplines in a rigorous and collaborative environment. Harvard’s scope is measured in its unparalleled breadth and depth of courses and clinics, its wide array of research programs, its diverse student body drawn from across the nation and around the world, and its extensive network of distinguished alumni. More broadly, law students can tap into Harvard University’s extraordinary resources through joint degree programs, cross-registration, and a variety of social and cultural venues.

We invite you to explore HLS through our website, and introduce yourself so that we can keep in touch through the application process.
