Location, Location, Location
In the world of real estate, you will no doubt hear the phrase, “location, location, location.” Where you live, work, and play is important to your happiness. And so is the location of your law school. It’s a good thing that Capital University Law School is in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, the state capital and a great place to live, study, work, and play.
Besides the Law School’s great library, student commons, and many little nooks and crannies around the Law School, our neighborhood offers other places for study and reflection. Consider the award-winning Columbus Metropolitan Library. The Main Branch, just a block from Capital Law, is housed in a gorgeous 1907 marble and granite palace that was constructed in the Roman classic style with a gift from the American industrialist Andrew Carnegie. With tables, reading rooms, and ample seating, the library offers a change of scenery for the dedicated student in need of a quiet space. When the weather is nice consider The Topiary Park. Inspired by the impressionist painter George Seurat’s famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte, the park offers a great green space for reading and relaxing, and for the occasional picnic!
Capital Law is in the heart of Ohio’s business and government epicenter. Home to prominent Fortune 500 companies, regional, national, and international law firms, state and federal offices, and prominent non-profit entities, downtown Columbus is the place to work. Law students have ample student employment opportunities within a short walk of the Law School. Such proximity to the Law School allows you to leave the building and apply your acquired legal knowledge and refined skills in real-world settings.
Live (and Play)
Law school is a lot of work, which means you will live in downtown Columbus (even if your real home is in a suburb). Downtown Columbus offers ample access to amenities such as dry cleaners, banks, post office, grocery stores, and coffee shops. For example, within a short walk from the Law School is The Hills Market, offering fresh produce and prepared foods from some of Ohio’s best farms and food providers.
Also nearby are plenty of places to have a delicious bite to eat or to enjoy a good cocktail. Columbus is full of foodies and imbibers looking to try new things.The city doesn't disappoint!
