A W&M law degree comes in handy if you want to change the world.
More than 6,800 W&M lawyers live and practice around the world in all 50 states, DC, and in 40 other countries. That’s a lot of citizen lawyers.
John Marshall was among the first to study law at W&M . He went on to have a seminal impact on American history as the nation's fourth chief justice.
Today's W&M graduates are leaders in law firms, counselors to businesses and higher education, public interest gadflys, judges, professors, prosecutors and public defenders. One of the best perks of attending William & Mary Law School is that our alumni are lifetime members of a tight-knit community of legal eagles. Our graduates may (or may not) get lawyer jokes. What they do get are the jobs, the positions, and the opportunities that go to those who have the benefit of an outstanding legal education.
