2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the founding of Stanford Law. As we celebrate this milestone, we honor our Stanford roots and the forward-looking principles that guided our founding — as relevant today as they were in 1893.
Educating future lawyers, leaders, scholars and teachers … generating new knowledge that shapes practice and policy … evolving to reflect law’s global, interdisciplinary scope … emphasizing immersive, experiential learning … cultivating a community of distinction … These priorities reflect the commitment to innovation and impact that gave rise to SLS and that drives us forward.
SLS has always been more about the future than the past. This year, we invite our community to imagine beyond Stanford Law’s first 125 years as, together, we answer the questions that define us: What’s next? And how can we continue to make a difference?
