The University of Virginia School of Law, founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, is a world‑renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants and an integral part of a great university. One of Jefferson's eight original faculties, the Law School advances Jefferson's belief that lawyers should be educated to promote the ideals of leadership, integrity, and community service in their practice.

 

The Law School is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, a picturesque and thriving metropolitan community located about two hours southwest of Washington, D.C. The Law School's 1,100 students gain an appreciation of the power of law to shape human behavior and to influence our political, social, and cultural experience. Virginia is widely recognized for the collegial environment it affords both students and faculty, and student satisfaction is consistently cited as among the highest in American law schools. Students subscribe to the University of Virginia's student‑run honor system, in place for more than 160 years, which enables law students to enjoy the kind of personal freedom that is possible only in an environment where mutual respect and trust exist.

 

The Law School's faculty includes 75 full‑time professors and more than 100 adjunct faculty members. A combination of seasoned experts and promising young teachers and scholars, faculty members have written dozens of casebooks and scholarly works now used in law schools across the country. Faculty members are committed to teaching, offering approximately 230 courses and 200 seminars each academic year. One of the newest curricular innovations is the Mary Morton Parsons Seminars in Ethical Values. Using readings from literature old and new, these seminars offer Virginia students an opportunity to enhance their understanding of ethical issues by bridging the gap between the rules of professional conduct enforced by the organized bar and the broader ethical and moral concerns that confront lawyers as citizens.

 

The Law School has one of the most successful career services programs in the country. Approximately 96 percent of the school's graduates generally accept employment offers before graduation. Members of the class of 2006 accepted 61 judicial clerkships; in virtually every year in recent history at least one member of the graduating class has secured a clerkship with a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

 

The Law School's Mortimer M. Caplin Public Service Center offers career support to students seeking public interest jobs, coordinates student pro bono activities, and serves as an information hub for all Law School public service programs and activities. The center also administers the Law School's public service loan assistance program, which provides grants to graduates who choose to work in public interest law.

 

The Arthur J. Morris Library, the tenth largest law library in the country, owns 900,000 volumes as well as substantial collections of federal, state, and international documents, manuscripts, and archives.

 

The Law School has more than 60 student organizations, including nine student‑edited scholarly journals, Moot Court, a weekly newspaper, various groups organized around major areas of law, service organizations, student government, and social fraternities.

 

The Law School is home to four internationally known special programs. The Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy offers a multi‑disciplinary training, educational, research, and service program in the areas of forensic psychiatry, forensic psychology, and mental health law. The John M. Olin Program in Law and Economics supports research and provides a forum for discussion and debate relating to the economic analysis of legal issues. The Center for Oceans Law and Policy seeks to promote rational choices for managing the future of the oceans, coastal, and polar areas through teaching, research, and the dissemination of information. The Center for National Security Law promotes advanced interdisciplinary research, non‑partisan scholarship, and education about the legal aspects of national security issues.
