A crowd of people sitting in the University of St. Thomas School of Law courthouse.


St. Thomas is not only an outstanding law school, it is an outstanding place to be a law student. We are proud to be among the best law schools for quality of life. In fact, we were ranked #8 on The Princeton Review’s “Best Quality of Student Life” list in 2021. We've landed in the top 10 on this list nearly every year since 2008.

We draw passionate students from around the world with a wide range of experiences, voices and beliefs who want to improve the world in which they live. One hallmark of our community is engaged but civil debate about the important issues of our time; our students understand their role in maintaining the quality of life that initially drew them to St. Thomas Law. We are intentional about building an inclusive and diverse law school that is oriented toward cultivating a strong sense of belonging and support within our school and promoting justice in our world.

With more than three dozen active student organizations at the School of Law, our students have ample opportunity to put their commitment to service, leadership and social justice to work. Many organizations sponsor speaker programs, while others coordinate community service opportunities. Still others provide for personal growth and introspection, or a chance to have fun with friends. The list of groups varies from year to year along with student interests.
