Consistently recognized as a top law university, approximately 12,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students choose to come to Washington University from all 50 states and from 90 other nations. The University is also home to other outstanding graduate schools and programs, including: the School of Medicine; George Warren Brown School of Social Work; and the John M. Olin School of Business. The wide spectrum of academic disciplines available at Washington University enhances the diversity of our student population and adds to the intellectual life of the University and the School of Law.

In addition to an excellent national reputation, well-respected faculty, and a state-of-the-art facility, the School of Law also offers students a friendly and supportive learning environment. Our students, who are cooperative rather than competitive, help sustain this environment. Our faculty members' open door policy allows you to get the guidance you need. And if you're like many of our students, you build lasting friendships with faculty members and classmates.


While the building itself appears traditional, the latest computing and multimedia technologies are incorporated into its infrastructure. The information resources of the School of Law include the Law Library, Computing Services, and the Audio-Visual Units. These resources provide the School of Law with unparalleled state-of-the-art research, automation and multimedia services.
