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.
The best way to learn more about W&L Law is to talk to us! Connect with other admitted students and our current students on Facebook. Or let us put you in touch with a student who shares your background and interests.
Save the Date - Open House 2020
Each year the admissions department hosts opportunities for admitted students to enjoy a preview of life as a W&L law student. Please consider attending one of these days to gain the distinctive experience of W&L Law. The dates for our 2020 Open Houses are:
More information will be available from this website by mid-December.
Each year, we ask our incoming students to reflect on their law school search and what ultimately led them to W&L Law. Hear their stories below.
"The alumni come back, they want to talk to the current students. I think that says a lot about the school - when people who are no longer here give back, they do it because they want to. That shows what kind of school you're going to." -- Rashanna Butler
"Not only did the bar passage rates and the job placement rates stand out to me, but there seemed to be a greater sense of community, and a lot of organizations I could join. I knew that would be important to me at a Law School." -- Sarah Van Horn
"Look at the student to teacher ratio, because that is a big part. When talking about institutions and how available faculty are to you, that goes a long way to helping you get an education." -- Dami Lawal
"When I came to campus, and got to talk to students and hear about their experiences... there was just no doubt in my mind that it would be a fantastic opportunity to come over here. Really glad that I made that decision." -- Emily Kendall
