John Marshall and UIC Are Working to Create Chicago's Public Law School
John Marshall and the University of Illinois at Chicago are working to create Chicago’s first public law school, and we’re on track to implement this change for Fall 2019, pending final approval by our accreditors. This transition will present numerous opportunities that capitalize on UIC’s strengths as one of only 115 Research 1 universities in the U.S., including classes jointly taught by renowned John Marshall and UIC faculty, and will substantially lower tuition for Illinois residents.
