The Washington and Lee University School of Law seeks to cultivate broad-minded, highly skilled, and honorable practitioners of law. We do so within a diverse and collaborative intellectual community exemplifying rigor, trust, and civility.
W&L Law has long been an innovator in legal education, and these innovations have allowed the School to build a singular community that educates students for character and challenges them to solve the problems they will face in a complex world. It fosters a desire not simply to act, but to act intelligently and ethically.
Our newest class includes 151 students from 33 states and six countries. Full class profile.
Over 90% of our students receive financial aid, and we rank continually among the nation's best value law schools.
Law school is hard. Life in law school doesn't have to be. Our low cost of living and six minute commutes to campus are just some of things that make Lexington a great place to live during law school.
Our liberal arts model provides small classes and unparalleled faculty access so students can design a legal education that is a custom fit for their career objectives.
All students at W&L are guaranteed a lawyering experience with real clients. Learn more about our committment to experiential education.
W&L Law is committed to great outcomes for our graduates. The Classes of 2018-2020 had a ten-month employment rate of 90% in all jobs. W&L Law consistently ranks in the top 20 nationally in federal clerkships. More employment outcomes.
On average, our graduates take the bar exam in 25 different states, and our three-year bar pass average for first-time takers is 91 percent nationwide.
