About Columbus

  • Located in downtown Columbus, Capital University Law School is in the heart of the legal community of one of the nation's most populous states. We are within blocks of the Ohio Supreme Court; State Capitol; Ohio Attorney General's Office; a State Court of Appeals; a Federal District Court; the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas; and the headquarters of numerous banks, insurance companies and Fortune 500 corporations. The Law School is within one mile of approximately 5,000 attorneys.

    The Law School is within a mile of four of the city's trendiest entertainment districts: the Brewery District (nightlife), the Arena District (NHL Hockey, concerts, dining and nightlife), the Short North (arts, dining and nightlife), and German Village (cafes and shopping).

    Columbus residents enjoy a full array of social, cultural and academic activities. Downtown Columbus is home to theaters hosting major concerts, Broadway productions, symphony, ballet, opera, and jazz. It is also home to the Columbus Museum of Art, COSI (a nationally renowned science museum), the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and a National Hockey League team - the Columbus Blue Jackets. Columbus and the surrounding suburbs are home to approximately 1.6 million people. Central Ohio is known for the diversity of its people, its neighborhoods and its quality of life. Columbus is full of exciting professional and social opportunities waiting to be explored!

    All of this, coupled with one of the lowest costs of living among large cities, makes Columbus one of the best cities to live in the United States.
