Washburn University School of Law prides itself on its successful, student-centered approach to teaching. We begin by providing an environment conducive to learning.
We offer classes large enough to include multiple perspectives yet small enough to encourage interaction among classmates and professors. An open-door policy invites you to meet with professors outside of class, and a collegial atmosphere embraces diversity and an open exchange of views.
At Washburn Law, you can choose from nearly 150 courses, seminars, and clinical offerings. Every step of the way, from the first year through graduation, our comprehensive curriculum and innovative programs prepare students for success in the legal profession.
Two Enrollment Options
You may start law school in August, through our traditional Fall Start Program, or in January, through the Spring Start Program. Washburn Law enrolls about 150 students in the fall and 25 students for the spring semester.
Fast Track Accelerated Option
Our optional Fast Track Accelerated Option gives fall or spring starters the opportunity to graduate in two calendar years -- the shortest amount of time allowed by the American Bar Association. The 90 required credits can be completed during two fall, two spring, and two full summer sessions.
"After the first week at Washburn, I knew I made the right choice. The faculty and my classmates from 1 L's to 3 L's have been truly amazing in making me feel at home and welcomed."
— John Bird, Class of 2016
