Life at UChicago
Life at the Law School is not just about studying—from weekly Wine Mess and Coffee Mess to the annual Law School Musical, our students and faculty manage to have a lot of fun while being serious about ideas.
The Law School is home to more than 60 student organizations with a wide variety of purposes. We encourage students to get involved in whatever groups interest them.

Located in the community of Hyde Park on Chicago’s South Side, just 15 minutes from the city center, the University of Chicago is uniquely positioned to contribute to, and draw from, the strength and diversity of this world-class metropolis. We have also made an indelible mark on the world at large.

Chicago is a world-class city known for its jazz and blues, sophisticated yet affordable restaurants, theater and improvisational comedy, professional sports, modern architecture, and waterfront diversions.
