Location and Hours

The Lewis F. Powell Jr. Archives is located in Sydney Lewis Hall, the home of the Washington and Lee University School of Law, in historic Lexington, Virginia. The archives is currently open to researchers by appointment only. Due to restrictions put in place to protect the health and safety of our community, physical access to the archives is limited to current W&L faculty, staff, and students. Virtual meetings may be requested for researchers outside of the W&L community. When possible, the archivist will digitize materials on request for both W&L and remote researchers in accordance with existing policies and procedures.
