Cleveland-Marshall College of Law is located in Cleveland, OH

The Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University is located in Cleveland, Ohio and traces its origins to the founding of Cleveland Law School in 1897 as the first evening law school in the state of Ohio and one of the first in the U.S. to admit women and minorities. In 1946, Cleveland Law School merged with the John Marshall School of Law, founded in 1916, to become Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Cleveland-Marshall affiliated with Cleveland State University in 1969.

The law school is renowned for educating a multitude of highly esteemed judges, political figures and founders of prestigious private law firms. Due to its long tradition of providing evening education, the college has also produced highly successful business leaders, particularly in the real estate industry, who are non-practicing attorneys.
