Welcome to the University of Dayton

The University of Dayton School of Law is an integral part of the University of Dayton—one of the preeminent Catholic universities in the nation and the largest private university in Ohio. We share the university’s commitment to serving others and offering an education that blends theory and practice.

Our mission has important implications for how law is taught here, and how you can expect to be treated as a student. We focus on attention to the individual, from first contact to well beyond graduation. We are also deeply committed to an inclusive environment. Our faculty, staff, and students work hard to make Dayton Law a collaborative community, where, we believe, you will find a warm, welcoming place.

Our courses are taught by talented, dedicated, full-time faculty and a cadre of part-time faculty that includes respected judges and experienced practitioners. As both a student and an alumnus, you will benefit from an extremely supportive network of alumni who regularly serve as teachers and mentors.

You will find Dayton Law to be a place where you forge lifelong friendships with your classmates. A diverse community of bright, motivated people who genuinely care about one another and about their community is waiting to welcome you.


All candidates for the LLM degree must possess a first degree in law from an accredited US law school or from a foreign university. Candidates for the LLM degree will be evaluated for admission based on academic and personal criteria, including law school and university transcripts, other academic records, employment experience, and other personal accomplishments. International applicants must also demonstrate English proficiency.

We have rolling admission for the LLM program but urge applicants to apply two to four months before their anticipated start date. For details on how to apply, please visit our website.

Conditional Admission

Conditional admission is possible if your native language is not English. Conditionally admitted students study English at the University of Dayton’s Intensive English Program (IEP) prior to taking courses at the law school. Course offerings include grammar, reading and writing, listening and speaking, TOEFL preparation, and pronunciation.

Our Program in Law and Technology is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in patent law, copyright and trademark law, cybersecurity and technology law, and related business and licensing issues. The program also regularly sponsors advanced programs for students, faculty, and practitioners.

The LLM program in intellectual property and technology law offers a number of innovative courses exploring the business dimensions of developing intellectual property and technology assets. The program offers instruction in all aspects of intellectual property law, cybersecurity and technology law, and both entertainment and mass communication law.

International Students

The University of Dayton’s Center for International Programs staff assists international students with a wide variety of areas, such as immigration issues, counseling, personal advising, social and extracurricular activities, and emergencies. The office also serves as a link between international students and the rest of the university and the surrounding community. The center’s World Exchange serves as a lounge and conference/work area, which fosters international interaction and partnership between those with international interests. Internationally oriented student clubs, faculty, and staff utilize this space for classes, meetings, and other international exchanges.


On-campus housing is available within three blocks of the law school, and there are many options for off-campus accommodations. Housing options are varied and affordable.
