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 around the Law School, our neighborhood offers other places for study and reflection. Around the corner is the award winning, and newly renovated, Columbus Metropolitan Library offering ample space to study, research, and read. Just a couple of blocks away are coffee shops with ample study space Brioso Roastery & Coffee Bar, The Roosevelt Coffeehouseand Koko Tea Slone.  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.
