Student Body

Harvard Law prides itself on intellectual vigor and social engagement as well as on professional excellence. Its graduates join the ranks of some 37,000 alumni who are leaders in law, government, academia, and the corporate and non-profit worlds.

The JD program at Harvard Law emphasizes the development of practical skills and judgment through active participation in clinics, externships, and student practice organizations. The School believes that student-faculty relations form the core of its educational experience, and strives to keep its student/faculty ratio low.

Harvard is particularly noted for the scope of legal education it offers.  It gives students over 230 elective courses to choose from, in addition to opportunities for specialized study through the School’s many research centers and programs. Students interested in joining law with another discipline also have the option of pursuing joint degrees with Harvard Business School, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
