About the School Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law
The Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law is committed to providing graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to aid society through the competent and ethical practice of law.
Students are exposed to the theories of law from a faculty of professors who are leaders in their fields and who embrace an open-door policy.
Valuable clinical and externship opportunities provide dynamic practical experience, and our accomplished, championship-caliber trial and moot court teams showcase the real-world legal skills developed at Barry Law.
With the 2011 completion of a three-story Legal Advocacy Center, the law school's 20-acre campus in Orlando is transforming into a state-of-the-art complex that is the focal point for legal resources, services, and knowledge in Central Florida.
"Barry Law students learn in a challenging but caring environment", said Dean Leticia M. Diaz, PhD, JD.

That commitment is at the heart of our mission at Barry Law".
