Founded in 1886, the University of Wyoming is the only public university in Wyoming. UW enrolls more than 13,000 students in its baccalaureate, graduate, and professional education programs. UW combines major-university benefits and small-school advantages. As one of the “best value” and smaller law schools in the country (enrollment of around 230 law students), the UW College of Law offers the unique opportunity to obtain hands-on practical experience in a legal environment and close interaction with leading faculty. The school's alumni include federal and state judges, elected officials, business leaders, corporate counsel, partners of major law firms, and dedicated public servants. Set against the backdrop of Wyoming's rugged mountains and high plains, the UW provides world-class research and teaching facilities. The main campus is in Laramie, approximately two hours north of Denver by car.
