The school is also home to two prominent legal journals: the University of Louisville Law Review and the Journal of Law & Education.

For the class entering in 2007, the student body was made up of 126 full-time and 42 part-time students. Almost two-thirds of the students were Kentucky residents; demographically, the class was evenly split between male and female students, with minorities comprising 17% of new law students.
The median LSAT score for the class was 157, with the 75th- and 25th-percentile scores being 159 and 154. The reported median GPA was 3.41, with the 75th- and 25th-percentile undergraduate GPAs registering at 3.70 and 3.11.
