Welcome to W&L Law

Congratulations, and welcome to W&L Law's Class of 2023!  We are excited to work with you in the weeks ahead to help you learn more about our law school community.  Please contact the Office of Admissions with any questions that you may have. Below are welcome messages from the Student Bar Association and other student organizations.

Orientation Information

COVID-19 and Law Admissions

The university has released its preliminary plans for on-campus instruction in the fall. The university's goal is a safe return to on-campus instruction this fall, provided government and health officials allow such a return. W&L's plan for returning students, faculty and staff to campus this academic year must be reviewed and approved by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). The university has submitted the plan to SCHEV, and it is available pending state approval on our COVID-19 Resources website.
