"It's definitely a challenge of time management. I love both things I do," Paul Rowley told the Journal. A member of the Law School's first-year class, he earned a double degree in finance and computer science in three years at William & Mary and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa as a junior. He is a forward on the university's basketball team. His sister Tess is a 2016 graduate of the Law School and practices law at Fried Frank in Washington, D.C.
Thomas Jefferson founded William & Mary Law School in 1779 to train leaders for the new nation. Now in its third century, America's oldest law school continues its historic mission of educating citizen lawyers who are prepared both to lead and to serve.
