LEARN LAW. LIVE JUSTICE. A Cleveland-Marshall education is a rigorous pursuit of excellence, beginning with study and sustained through practice.
The Cleveland Law School, founded in 1897, and the John Marshall Law School, founded in 1916, merged in 1946 to become Cleveland-Marshall Law School. In 1969 the law school joined the then-new Cleveland State University. The law school was the first in Ohio to admit women and it was one of the first law schools in Ohio to admit minorities.
