College of Law > About > Centers & Institutes
The College of Law’s urban-integrated and mission-inspired approach is complemented by excellent and innovative centers and institutes. Center and institute directors coordinate closely with faculty and staff to ensure students are well-supported by our community. The centers and institutes work strategically to leverage strengths with the University and organizations regionally, nationally and globally.
Centers and institutes complement the law school’s overall approach in a variety of ways -- furthering our reputation in fields such as health, intellectual property, and cultural heritage law; supporting student success through summer fellowships, mentoring opportunities, and other focused career development; creating communities of common interest and passion; and providing an intellectual gathering place for cutting-edge issues of interest to academics and lawyers.
