As the only law school in Iowa's capital city, Drake law students have a competitive advantage obtaining clerkships, internships, and professional employment.

Our campus is 10 minutes from the state capitol, state and federal courts, and a dynamic business district that is national headquarters for insurance, banking, and publishing firms--many of which are led by Drake alumni.

With a population over 700,000, there's something for everyone in greater Des Moines--foodies, art aficionados, and sports fans alike.

The real question: What CAN'T you do here?

Don't just take our word for it.
