About Ave Maria School of Law

Fides et Ratio. Faith and Reason. This is Ave Maria School of Law's motto. With a campus located in Naples, Southwest Florida's paradise, and small class sizes, students have the advantage of one-on-one time with their professors. At the root of where it all began is Ave Maria Law's inimitable founder, American entrepreneur, U.S. Veteran and devoted Catholic, Tom Monaghan. Ave Maria Law is proud to be named "Most Conservative" and "Most Devout" law school by PreLaw magazine, one of the best law schools by The Princeton Review, and ranked, more than once, a top military friendly school by VIQTORY.
