Law Student Ambassadors

The Law Ambassadors are a select group of students who work closely with the Admissions Office throughout the calendar year to facilitate a range of recruitment activities.

For those students who schedule individual visits to our campus, a Law Ambassador will effectively function as your visit host, walking you to your appointed class, leading your tour of the law school, and answering any questions you might have about life at W&L Law.

Law Ambassadors are also a vital component of our Admitted Student Open House weekends, and often communicate with our admitted students through email to answer any questions they may have about life in Lexington.

The Law Ambassadors program is one more personal touch that distinguishes our law school from a great many others, and we sincerely hope you will come visit our campus or that you will take advantage of our virtual visit options to engage with us.  We look forward to meeting you!
