The John Marshall Law School is a law school in Chicago, Illinois, that was founded in 1899 and accredited by the American Bar Association in 1951. The school was named for the influential nineteenth century U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall. The John Marshall Law School offers programs for both part-time and full-time students, with both day and night classes available, and offers January enrollment — choices most law schools no longer offer. John Marshall is located in Chicago's central financial and legal district, most commonly known as The Loop. It is across the street from the Dirksen Federal Building, which houses the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and about four blocks from the Daley Center, which houses the Cook County Courts. It is also next door to the Chicago Bar Association. The fall 2012 entering class had a median GPA of 3.29 and a median LSAT of 153.[2]
