His Own Words

"Williamsburg is a great place to be in law school. Because it's a tourist destination, the town has restaurants, stores, movie theaters, and plenty to do when you want to take a break from studying. In addition, I was pleasantly surprised by how approachable my professors have been. They not only met with me to discuss concepts from class but also to talk about their professional experiences and give career advice. Given the number of professors who have held prestigious clerkships and worked in selective law firms, they have been able to provide some great words of wisdom. Everyone talks about the sense of community here as being what makes the school special, and I think that's true."
