Washington University in St. Louis

Located in St. Louis, Missouri, Washington University School of Law is one of the top law schools in the nation. Students attending benefit by studying with a nationally and internationally renowned faculty. They have the opportunity to augment their legal education through a number of joint degree programs, including outstanding JD/MSW, JD/East Asian Studies, and JD/MBA programs. Graduates enjoy opportunities to network with more than 6,000 accomplished alumni who practice in every leading metropolitan area in the country, as well as overseas.

Law classes are small, so students experience a sense of intellectual excitement and professional development. Since the completion of Anheuser-Busch Hall in 1997 and the expansion into Seigle Hall in 2009, the law school has enjoyed a programmatic renaissance. It has established new interdisciplinary and international centers that focus on cutting-edge legal issues nationally and internationally. The school’s commitment to clinical legal education and real-life practice is recognized through a vast array of clinics, internships, and clerkships that are based here, in Washington, D.C., and overseas.

An education at Washington University School of Law provides the opportunity to experience outstanding teaching and to develop a mastery of the fundamentals necessary for the practice of law.
