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. Our state-of-the-art Legal Clinic includes opportunities in Wrongful Convictions, Immigration Law, Children's Rights, and more. The First-Year Trial Practicum is a unique opportunity for students to view an actual state or federal trial from start to finish. As the only law school in the capital city of Des Moines, our students have unique opportunities to gain experience in government, business, state and federal courts, the legal sector, and more. 

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2022. The priority application deadline is April 1, 2022.

Students admitted for the Fall 2022 semester have the option to enroll in June or August.

Students who start in the Summer Start Program may elect to graduate in 2 1/2 years.
