About Creighton School of Law

There's no place like Creighton University School of Law.

Creighton University School of Law was founded in 1903, not just to prepare lawyers but to develop leaders. To provide a powerful education, based on a solid mission statement and rooted in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. We believe in the Jesuit idea of educating the whole person, of empowering our graduates to find their place in the world. So that they contribute to the greater good. Through leadership. Through service. Throughout their life.


Creighton School of Law is located in Omaha, Nebraska, on the Western bank of the Missouri River. Originally called the “Gateway to the West,” Omaha is now a communications hub for the nation. Living in Omaha provides unbelievable opportunities for Creighton students to engage in life-changing externships, launch careers and experience culture, recreation and entertainment. And getting here is easy.


In 1907, Creighton School of Law became just the second religiously affiliated law school to be granted full accreditation by the Association of American Law Schools. In 1924, we were one of the first three religiously affiliated law schools to be accredited by the American Bar Association
