Why Apply to W&M?

Because the world needs more lawyers like you.

Students choose W&M because they want a profoundly challenging and engaging legal education from a faculty that exemplifies the citizen-lawyer ethic. When these experts in criminal, constitutional and international law aren’t teaching or advising students, they run clinics, start book clubs with prisoners, and consult on foreign constitutions.

Your classmates and friends will amaze you. They’re surfers, scholars, activists, and world travelers. In our student organizations, you’ll collaborate on service projects, edit law journals, and compete on our champion moot court, trial, alternative dispute resolution, and transactional law teams. 

A W&M Law School education is a hands-on education. In our pioneering Legal Practice Program, you will cultivate first-hand knowledge of the law in a small group setting and increase your skills as you work with experienced legal writing faculty and law librarians.

And to top it all off, you’ll be living and learning in Williamsburg, a thriving college town and tourist destination with enough restaurants, movie theaters, outdoor activities, and shopping to keep you busy for six semesters of weekends.

The Law School is dedicated to helping our graduates find jobs that they’re passionate about. The Career Services staff uses our huge alumni network and connections with thousands of worldwide law firms and non-profits to place students with the summer positions, clerkships, and first jobs that lead to meaningful, rewarding careers.
