What Makes Bowen Special?

The UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law, with our core values of public service, access to justice, and professionalism, has been at the forefront of practice-ready and skills-focused learning for over forty years. As the only law school in Little Rock, Bowen students have access to business and government leaders that are only available in a capital city.

Bowen is consistently rated a National Jurist preLaw Best Value Law School, a ranking that reflects the fact that our students, by and large, graduate with very little debt, pass the bar exam, and get bar-license required or JD-advantage jobs.
