New technologies and artificial intelligence will challenge what it means to be a lawyer and change the workplace. Graduates from Wake Forest Law are prepared to leverage those innovations and also have skills and qualities that can't simply be automated.
Knowing how to collaborate through difference is essential to building partnerships and coalitions that foster change at a state and local level, where change is happening. Shaped by a small and deeply personal education, we develop agents of progress and innovation.
For more than 125 years, we’ve been developing advocates who lead by pairing compassion and perseverance with creativity and character — a combination that ensures problems are assessed with integrity and professionalism.
Our degree and certificate programs offer a curriculum that allows each student to design their education in a way that intentionally connects legal theory to professional practice.
