Front view of the law school's exteriorThe UALR William H. Bowen School of Law is one of the finest law facilities in the nation. Originally constructed in the 1930s to house the state’s medical school, the six-story building was completely renovated in 1992 to create modern law classrooms and courtrooms while preserving the traditional brick exterior.

Bowen overlooks the historic MacArthur Park, the Arkansas Arts Center and a dog park. Our downtown location provides students with easy access to the State Capitol, government buildings, and Arkansas’ largest law firms and businesses.

The law school is home to the Pulaski County Law Library and Pulaski County Bar Association. Every day attorneys and judges are walk the halls on their way to meetings, the law library, or the various seminars and continuing education courses offered at the law school.

Bowen has numerous dynamic classrooms, including three courtrooms which are used to enhance the classroom experience, provide practice space, and host actual trial and appellate proceedings.

The legal clinic – our law firm inside the law school – provides amenities for students, clients, faculty, and staff including a client waiting room, a children’s playroom, client interview rooms, classrooms, student work carrels with computers, and meeting rooms.

The school houses its own bookstore so that students can find materials they need right on campus and our large parking area on site is free to all students.

At the Bowen School of Law, our design offers an academic environment equipped to ensure your success.
