Future Students

Drake Law School provides a different kind of legal education. With an excellent foundation in legal theory, our students roll up their sleeves and put theory into action.

Skills training is integrated into coursework by our faculty—all of whom have actually practiced law—and reinforced through our one-of-a-kind trial practicum, clinics, and internships.

As the only law school in the capital city of Des Moines, our students have unique opportunities to gain experience in the government, business, state and federal courts, the legal sector, and more.
