The University of Richmond School of Law attracts motivated and accomplished students. Here, they undergo a rigorous academic experience and enjoy individualized attention. Students prepare for career success through the guidance of the Career Development Office and the practical skills gained in the classroom, through competitions, and via internships and employment.

Students leave Richmond Law for jobs with large and small firms, in government agencies, and in corporate offices. Our students have an enviable record of securing among the highest percentage of prestigious judicial clerkships in the country. They enter the federal government through the Presidential Management Fellowship program. Our graduates become civic servants and leaders in the legal community.
