The University of Chicago is one of the best universities for any subject. They're considered on par with Ivy League schools in terms of academics. Their law school is no exception.
Keep in mind, it's also one of the hardest schools to get accepted to. The median LSAT (Law School Admission Test) score for the class entering in 2017 was 170 with an undergraduate GPA of 3.9. It has an acceptance rate of 21.89% (Source: http://chicago.lawschoolnumbers.com/)
If you want to go there, make sure your LSAT and undergrad GPA is at that level. If it isn't, the likelihood of acceptance is very low.
I recommend that you start with some internet research. Here are some suggestions:
There may be Facebook pages for the Chicago Law School or its law students or its law student alumni where you could learn more from the law school and those who attend or have attended it. If possible I recommend that you personally visit the school and talk to someone in their admissions office about the school. You could see the school for yourself and may be able to talk to some of the students who are currently attending. The law school's website should have information about the programs and courses.

The most important thing to determine is if being a lawyer is a career which is relevant to your personality traits and if you share the same personality traits as successful lawyers. Getting to know yourself and how your personality traits relate to people involved in various career opportunities is very important in your decision making process. During my many years in Human Resources and College Recruiting, I ran across too many students who had skipped this very important step and ended up in a job situation which for which they were not well suited. Selecting a career area is like buying a pair of shoes. First you have to be properly fitted for the correct size, and then you need to try on and walk in the various shoe options to determine which is fits the best and is most comfortable for you to wear. Following are some important steps which I developed during my career which have been helpful to many .
