About St. Thomas Law
St. Thomas University traces its roots to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva, founded in 1946 in Havana, Cuba. The Castro government expelled the American Augustinians who helped create that school, but their legacy lives on at STU Law, which offers an immigration clinic, an LLM degree in Intercultural Human Rights, and a diverse, international experience in Miami, FL.
