W&M Law School professors are more than merely accessible. They’re personally invested in your education and your success. Their teaching philosophy goes hand-in-hand with the Law School’s belief in the citizen lawyer. The goal is to educate the whole student, something that won’t be accomplished through lectures alone.
Your law professors will be the faculty advisors for your student groups. They'll be the first people you ask for advice about that summer internship or your first job.
What's most amazing about this level of student-professor engagement is that our faculty comprises nationally and internationally recognized experts in many fields of law. They've written hundreds of notable books, treatises and articles. Our faculty conduct research because they want to effect change; they teach so they can prepare a new generation of W&M lawyers to do the same.
Apart from our full-time faculty, we also boast an impressive adjunct professorship made up of practicing lawyers and public officials with decades of hands-on experience in the practice of law. These professors prove by example that good lawyers are vitally engaged in the life of the local community, state, nation and world.
