At Virginia Law, “the faculty represents an exceptional diversity of interests and includes leading scholars and acknowledged experts in all aspects of public and private law, both U.S. and international. Reflecting the Law School’s emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of law, a number of faculty also hold doctoral degrees in a variety of related fields, including economics, history, philosophy, psychology, and medicine. The faculty is enriched each year by visitors from other leading law schools here and abroad, as well as by new regular faculty appointees at both junior and senior levels.” (Virginia Law Website)

Virginia Law has a geographically diversity student body. In a recent year, it welcomed students from 40 states, the District of Columbia, and 10 foreign countries. In addition, its students represent approximately 145 undergraduate institutions. When it comes to student life, students have a wide variety of extracurricular activities from which to choose. For example, the school has nine scholarly journals and 70 student organizations, with “at least 10 involved extensively in public service projects.” (Virginia Law Website) In addition, in Charlottesville, “cultural opportunities abound. Theater, opera, and music are community fixtures. Jefferson’s Monticello and the nearby homes of James Madison and James Monroe feature classic architecture and rich history. Each fall the University hosts the nationally acclaimed Virginia Film Festival and in the spring gathers the nation’s literary luminaries for the Virginia Festival of the Book.” (Virginia Law Website) Downtown Charlottesville is a vibrant mix of restaurants, independent stores, with a thriving local arts and crafts community. And Virginia Law students also have easy access to numerous Virginia wineries and organic farms set among the roll hills of the Appalachian mountains.

When it comes to student housing, Virginia Law does provide some graduate housing. However, space is limited and many students choose to live off campus. The school does provide a number of online resources which contain listings of available housing to assist students with their search.
