The University of Cincinnati College of Law is the fourth oldest continually running law school in the United States and a founding member of the Association of American Law Schools. It was started in 1833 as the Cincinnati Law School. Then-dean and future 27th President of the United States, William Howard Taft (1880), merged it with the University of Cincinnati in 1896. The school is one of only five American law schools, along with Yale Law School, Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, to have produced both a President of the United States (William Howard Taft) and a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (both Taft and Willis Van Devanter). Incidentally, the school has also produced a Vice President of the United States, Charles G. Dawes, as well as numerous governors and U.S. congressmen.
