    The PowerScore Law School Spotlight gives you a snapshot of a different law school each week. For more information about each profiled institution, be sure to check out the school's website.

    University of Colorado Law School is today's Law School Spotlight. From LSAC's Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools:

    Colorado Law, established in 1892, is located on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado and lies at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. High admission standards, a relatively small student body, and a favorable faculty-to-student ratio assure a stimulating and challenging academic environment that encourages class participation and interaction with faculty. The school is a charter member of the AALS and is ABA approved.
