William and Mary Law School

Our Graduates

A W&M law degree comes in handy if you want to change the world.

More than 7,800 W&M lawyers live and practice around the world in all 50 states, D.C., and in 46 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.
