At Northwestern Law we go beyond teaching the basics of legal reasoning to enable our students to make sound and ethical judgements, understand and improve the delivery of justice, and respond to the changing contexts in which law and legal institutions operate. Accordingly, the overarching goal of our curricular plan is to empower our graduates to adapt to and master the challenges of the changing world better than those of any other law school.
