Learn Why Location Matters

We think you’ll love our Hogwarts-esque campus (known to inspire great thinking) as much as our vibrant city — home to some of the best restaurants, music, and trails on the East Coast. And with more courts than almost any other city in the United States, plus seven Fortune 500 headquarters, Richmond is the perfect location to find that dream internship — making it not just a great place to live, but a great place to pursue your J.D., and to become a lawyer.

Your fellow students are smart. They’re also caring, resilient, and adaptable. Not only does our law school culture produce lawyers who are more effective in their professional interactions with clients and colleagues — but it also makes Richmond Law a pretty great place to study, earn your J.D., network, and grow for three years!

Your ambition and our resources combine at Richmond Law — with fantastic results. Outside of the classroom, you’ll have the chance to pursue an externship in D.C., or work for real clients in our clinical programs. After graduation from law school, you’ll find our alumni working at Google, the Supreme Court of Virginia, or an AmLaw 200 firm. There’s no shortage of opportunities for you to make your mark.
