Welcome Admitted Students

Connect

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.

Open House

Save the Date - Open House 2019

  • February 22-23
  • April 5-6

More information, as well as the registration form, will be available from this website in December.

Why W&L Law

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

"For a student with a family, one might find yourself concerned with the family being pushed to the side of the experience of Law School, and that hasn't been the case here in Lexington." -- Matt Dare

"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
