Strategic Priorities - Capital University Law School

Strategic Priorities

  • In developing a strategic plan for Capital University Law School, we will remain dedicated to our mission: To strengthen society and our legal system by developing skilled lawyers who serve diverse communities well, promoting professionalism and ethics, and furthering discourse and knowledge.

    We also remain committed to providing access to the legal profession for first-generation professionals, minorities and other underrepresented groups.

    In addition to adhering to Capital Law’s mission and core values, the following foundational philosophies have been identified as critical for the strategic planning partnership as we begin our work in the coming months:

    Priority 1: Maintain our current high bar passage rate.

    Priority 2: Provide a high-value education at a lower cost.

    Priority 3: Increase the market-readiness of our graduates.

    Priority 4: Foster a culture of innovation.

    While we address many of these topics already in courses at Capital Law, we can and must do much more. Without sacrificing the quality of the essential legal training we already are providing, we can enrich our students’ law school experience by adding depth to our curriculum. As a result, employers will recognize the added value a degree from Capital Law ensures and the employability of our graduates will be improved.
