BYU Law believes in the power of innovative ideas and inspiring leadership. Our special mission is to integrate individual and community excellence with innovation through a commitment to changing the world for better by advancing peace, justice, and opportunity. We invite you to join us as we continue to make advances in the areas of social change, transactional design, entrepreneurship, criminal justice, legal technology, and religious freedom—all unified by a commitment to empowering individuals and communities through the rule of law.
As BYU Law Dean Gordon Smith shared with our new law students, “The study of law will expand your visions and your opportunities. Unlike graduate study in most disciplines . . . law students are exposed to new possibilities for their careers in almost every course.” After graduation, our students pursue employment opportunities in the highest levels of the legal profession, working for prestigious federal judges, elite law firms and leading public interest organizations. We invite you to learn more about how BYU Law can set you on the path to not only professional excellence but also inspiring leadership.
