Judge's Gavel

Welcome to North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Law. We are excited about your interest in our program. The School of Law offers a challenging curriculum and it is one of the most affordable and diverse law schools in the country. We offer two programs leading to the Juris Doctor degree: a full-time day program and a part-time evening program.  Both programs are broad-based and intellectually stimulating, with instruction in legal theory and analytical and practical skills. Our administration and faculty seek to foster a deep sense of personal integrity, professional responsibility and social conscience in each student. The School of Law has a long-standing commitment to public service and educates a significant number of lawyers who are dedicated to providing legal representation to underserved persons and communities. We also adequately prepare our graduates to enter the legal profession in any arena they choose.

Founded in 1939 to provide an opportunity for a legal education to African-Americans, the School of Law now provides this opportunity to a more diverse student body, as it pertains to race and gender. This environment of diversity better prepares our students to effect positive change in the broader society.

The student body consists of approximately 600 students. Our relatively small size allows for a favorable student-faculty ratio, individual attention, academic support for students, and a sense of community.

For a rigorous and enriching experience, we encourage you to pursue a legal education at NCCU School of Law. This bulletin describes our unique program: one committed to celebrating diversity and advancing justice.
