Our faculty have strong relationships and deep connections to the legal profession.  Our students take full advantage of the opportunities these relationships create; they work with faculty on groundbreaking research, excel in field placements, and take on interdisciplinary paths that allow them to apply their passion to their profession. 

Through these experiences, our students learn how to work with people at every level and build relationships of their own.  That's the SIU Law Advantage.
