Sturm College of Law

Achieving unprecedented heights in legal education and policy.

Since our founding in 1892, the Sturm College of Law has been one of the nation’s most innovative law schools.

Among the most ascendant law schools in the nation, Sturm is the undisputed leader in experiential legal education and a forerunner in diversifying legal education.   

Today, Sturm has risen into the ranks of the top 100 law schools nationwide, and it is the only law school with three skills-based programs to appear in the US News Top 10. Our distinctive programs have dramatically enhanced student credentials and experience, attracted high-profile faculty members, and launched novel, applied learning programs that drive momentum both at DU and within the legal community nationwide.  

Thank you for interest in becoming a Sturm College of Law difference-maker.
